What to Expect

Are you new to the NIH grant application process or overwhelmed by the logistics of submitting a grant application to NIH? Then this NIH eRA Workshop is for you.

We will guide the novice user through all the steps in the application submission process from preparing to apply to verifying your application has been successfully received at NIH. The workshop will focus on the process for submitting a standard research grant application (R01) and will point out key differences found with other programs. Demos, sample scenarios, and hands-on exercises are used to reinforce content.

Bring your questions, share your experiences, learn from others, and expand your professional network.

This “how-to” workshop lays the perfect foundation for the NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration. During the two day seminar, you’ll have the opportunity to build on that foundation and learn more about the policies and regulations, or the “why’s”, behind the “how’s”.


Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List the various registrations required to submit grant applications to NIH;
  • Search for grant opportunities in the NIH Guide for Grants & Contracts and Grants.gov and cite the benefits of searching both repositories;
  • Identify key Funding Opportunity Announcement sections that impact application submission;
  • List the submission options available to access forms, prepare applications, and submit completed application packages;
  • Describe the steps in the application submissions process;
  • Identify and resolve common application errors;
  • Evaluate how NIH submission policies might impact your application submission; and
  • Find self-help tools and resources.
