Sponsor Specific Submission Instructions

The National Institutes of Health
  • NIH PHS 398 Guidelines and Forms -
    • NIH has issued new instructions for proposal formatting. The use of Arial or Helvetica 11pt font is now REQUIRED. It is no longer optional. You may use a symbol font for special characters, but it must conform to the type size requirements.
    • All proposals submitted after December 1, 2004 must use the newly approved forms dated 9/2004. Proposals submitted on older forms will be returned without review after May 9, 2005. The links below have been modified to include the 9/2004 forms. 
  • Modular Budgets - NIH requires that budgets of less than $250,000 in each year be submitted in "Modular" format. A module consists of an increment of $25,000. Some specific Requests for Applications or Proposal Application Requests may require a detailed budget. Please read the requests carefully to determine which applies to your proposal. Although NIH does not require detailed information on the budget, a breakout of the detail is still required to determine the correct Facilities & Administrative Costs (F&A or IDC).
  • Guide for Investigators Submitting a Multi-institution or "Consortium" Proposal to the National Institutes of Health.
  • Forms required from subcontractors 
  • In notice OD-07-001 NIH announced a change in the deadlines for proposals submitted to the general review cycles. Please review and be aware of this change. This notice does not go into effect until January of 2007. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your specialist.
