Ranking Information: The ranking tables include data from both grants and contracts. Information reflects data available in the NIH system at the end of the fiscal year.  

This notification is to advise your organization that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) “Awards by State and Foreign Site” Fiscal Year 2004 Grant Data has been expanded to show Medical School detail. The CSV (Comma Separated Value) file format has been updated to include several new columns specific to Medical Schools. A “medical school grant flag” has been created. This column is marked ‘Y' when the grant is attributed to your Medical School for ranking purposes.

In some cases Medical School Name and Medical School Location are combined.

The appropriate individual(s) in your organization are strongly encouraged to access information on the NIH Extramural Awards by State and Foreign Site page and verify its accuracy prior to the posting of the 2004 Ranking Tables in the NIH web site. The published ranking tables are final and will not be changed.

A grant is attributed to a Medical School under the following conditions:

  1. The Medical School is recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and is flagged as such by the NIH, and
  2. The Major Component is “Schools of Medicine”, “Schools of Medicine & Dentistry” or “Overall Medicine”

To request corrections to the data, please contact Carolyn Stelle (

A subsequent notification will be posted in the NIH Guide when R&D Contract data is available for review.

The cut-off date for data correction will be determined based on availability of Contract data.
