NIH Tips for Applicants: Reviewers and staff at the National Institutes of Health offer their insights to scientists seeking to improve their chances of getting a grant from the National Institutes of Health.

NIH Peer Review Revealed provides a front-row seat to a NIH peer review meeting. Real scientists from the scientific community review fictional but realistic grant applications for scientific merit.

Our "What Happens to Your Grant Application" video gives new applicants for NIH grants access to one of our popular outreach presentations. It describes how the NIH Center for Scientific Review handles applications submitted to NIH. The video then describes how our panels of outside experts review applications so NIH can find and fund the ones with the most promise. Packed with many key details, this video complements our other YouTube videos: "NIH Peer Review Revealed" and "NIH Tips for Applicants." In these videos, NIH reviewers and staff offer their insights to researchers seeking to improve their chances of getting a grant from NIH.
