The goal of the Grants Virtual Assistant, in the current “alpha” phase, is to point users to appropriate web resources or staff contacts, not to provide self-contained answers. As the bot matures, its responses will grow more detailed.
Find Resources While Helping Us Train our Chatbot!
Ask questions related to NIH grants and our virtual assistant will do its best to help you find information on our website or point you to appropriate staff contacts.
To improve, the Grants Virtual Assistant needs practice and your feedback. Whether or not the Grants Virtual Assistant was able to help, please take a moment to complete our short survey to tell us about your experience.
To begin your conversation, click on the bot icon on the bottom right corner of this page and ask your first question. There are no bad questions, so feel free to ask anything you want, as long as it relates to grants at NIH. Suggested topics include:
- Application process
- Research training and career development
- Funding opportunities
- Human subjects research
- Submission policies
There’s no time limit, so feel free to chat for as long as you’d like.
