2021 NIH Virtual Seminar

2021 NIH Virtual Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration

Empowering the Research Workforce to Fuel Scientific Discovery

The 2021 NIH Virtual Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration has been designed to provide you with a unique opportunity to learn about the NIH grants process, programs, and policies directly from NIH & HHS experts.

This event is intended to help:

  • Demystify the application and review process;
  • Clarify federal regulations and policies; and
  • Highlight current areas of special interest or concern.

Who Should Attend?

This seminar is designed for those who are new to working with the NIH grants process – administrators, early-stage investigators, researchers, graduate students, etc. For those with more experience, NIH experts provide a few sessions that are designed for participants that are more advanced and are focused on more in-depth policies and processes.
