NIH Notice: Transition of Institutional Training and Institutional Career Development Programs to Electronic Submission

This transition will affect submission due dates on or before Jan. 25, 2010. This notice was issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC/NIOSH), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This notice announces the transition of applications for Institutional Training and Institutional Career Development Programs to electronic submission through using the SF424 (R&R) forms for due dates on or after January 25, 2010. The following programs will transition:

ALL applications in response to announcements for these grant programs must be submitted electronically (paper applications will not be accepted).
