NIH @ NC State Grantsmanship Series

The Proposal Development Unit is kicking off the Fall Semester with a spotlight on the National Institutes of Health. Our Newsletter & Resources Section has a new National Institutes of Health (NIH) Resources site (Unity ID) with information about finding and applying to NIH grants. Try visiting the Institutes-at-a-Glance section to see paylines, program contacts, and recent NC State awards for each of the Institutes and Centers at NIH!

Additionally, we invite everyone in the NC State community to join us for the NIH @ NC State Grantsmanship Series. These monthly seminars will acquaint you with the basics of NIH. Registration is not required, but we would appreciate it if you could fill out our interest form, so that we can let you know about any event updates.
