To address questions that investigators frequently ask about the review of their applications and the next steps after review, NIH recently created an online resource, titled Next Steps. It has also added a link to this new Web site on summary statements, just below the impact score and percentile.
- What does the score mean?
- When and how will I know if my application will be funded?, and
- When can an application no longer be resubmitted?
The FAQs do not cover all scenarios, but they do provide the basis for discussion with your program director.
