Use to apply for grants and cooperative agreements.
There is NOT a universal form set available for download that can be used to submit a grant application to NIH.
Forms must be completed and submitted using one of the available Submission Options
- Workspace (single-project only)
- Institutional system-to-system solution
Check with your administrative officials before choosing how you will submit.
The Application and Submission Information section (Section IV) of each funding opportunity identifies the customized set of forms (referred to as an “application package”) required for that opportunity. Each of the approved submission options automatically present the correct application package based on opportunity number (e.g., PA-FY-123).
See How to Apply – Application Guide for general instructions. Additional instructions may be found in the funding opportunity.
PDF copies of forms found in electronic application packages.
The individual application forms (in PDF format) below are for reference only. These forms CANNOT be uploaded to Workspace or ASSIST and CANNOT be used for grant application submission to NIH. Only forms accessed, prepared and submitted through ASSIST, an institutional S2S solution, or Grants.gov Workspace will be accepted.
