*The program was designed to accommodate Scholars in varying stages of research grant preparation. Candidates who have already submitted an NIH application or have a draft should send what they have prepared. Others who are earlier in the process should submit a prospectus, typically 2-3 pages, including a problem statement, aims, hypotheses, rationale and synopsis of the basic design and methodology.
