The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), in 
conjunction with the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS), is sponsoring a 
one-day workshop on NIH Grants Fundamentals.  The purpose of this meeting is 
to provide a basic understanding of the NIH research grants process from 
initial application to final reporting.  Discussion will focus on various 
funding mechanisms, the receipt and review process, pre-award funding 
considerations, post-award administration, and new policies and procedures 
related to the grant programs at NIH.  The workshop will be presented by 
NICHD grants management and scientific program staff.  The presentations will 
be targeted to new investigators and fellows in training.

The NICHD Grants Fundamentals workshop is scheduled on the day before the
