Several investigators graciously agreed to let NIAID post their applications online. I’m including some of the resources that NIAID has provided to the research community. They selected these applications as sound examples of good grantsmanship and highlighted each with annotations.
NOTE: The text of these applications is copyrighted. Per the NIAID website, you may only use the text for nonprofit educational purposes provided the document remains unchanged and the PI, the grantee organization, and NIAID are credited.
R21/R33 Sample Application and Summary Statement
The R21/R33 supports a two-phased award without a break in funding. It begins with the R21 phase for milestone-driven exploratory or feasibility studies with a possible transition to the R33 phase for expanded development. Transition to the second phase depends on several factors, including the achievement of negotiated milestones.
