Which Grant Is Right for Me?


We’re pleased to announce the launch of the new web resource, Which Research Grant Is Right for Me? This interactive decision tree will be particularly useful for investigators who are new to or less familiar with NIGMS notices of funding opportunities that support research. Through a series of yes/no questions, potential applicants can identify the best potential fit to one or more of the major research project grant types we support, including R35, R16, R15, and R01.

The questions work through the eligibility criteria for the different award types. For example:

  • Are you a new principal investigator?
  • Does your research team include primarily undergraduates?
  • Does your institution have no more than $6 million in total costs in 4 of the past 7 years?
  • Does your research require multiple principal investigators?
  • Does your institution enroll at least 25% of undergraduates supported by Pell grants?

You can select the “Tell me more” option for definitions and additional information as you click through the site.

We encourage you to visit the webpage and share this resource with your colleagues.

We welcome your comments about the new tool. If you have feedback, please email NIGMS_RDOC@nigms.nih.gov.
