Full Research Proposal (by invitation only)

The full application package should be submitted as a PDF via email to the Adelante Program Coordinator, Allison O’Rourke, at orourkea@gwu.edu.

The proposal must be submitted on PHS 398 forms and should follow an NIH investigator initiated grant application (R01) format with the modifications listed in the RFA. (For more resources see: https://www.niaid.nih.gov/grants-contracts/apply-grant).

The Research Plan (Significance through Approach) is limited to four pages (Specific Aims, Mentoring Plan, Future Plans for NIH Funding, Bibliography and References Cited sections do not count toward the page limit).  No appendices are allowed. Submit a detailed budget, not a modular budget. Applications must be in English.
