The program project grant is an important and valuable mechanism for advancing collaborative science in areas relevant to the NINDS. The purpose of this Notice is to reaffirm the commitment of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to supporting the program project grant mechanism and to announce a policy revision related to NINDS P01 and P50 applications.
Effective with the February 1, 2006 receipt date (October 2006 council), NINDS program project applications will no longer be percentiled. Funding strategies will be based upon scientific and technical merit, Institute priorities, and availability of funds.
The full set of policies and procedures related to NINDS program project grants is available at the following location:
For program project grant applications, as well as applications requesting $500,000 or more in direct costs (exclusive of any consortium F&A costs) for any year, the applicant must: 1) contact the NINDS program staff at least 6 weeks before submitting the application; 2) obtain agreement from the NINDS staff that NINDS will accept the application for consideration for awards; and 3) include a cover letter with the application identifying the NINDS staff member who agreed to accept assignment of the application.
