NCCIH’s Approach to Grant Funding

You’ve submitted your application, it’s been peer reviewed, and you’ve received your score and summary statement. What’s next? You’re probably asking, “Will I be funded?” It’s a good question, although not always a simple one to answer since many considerations go into each funding decision. Besides receiving a score within a favorable funding zone, other factors also affect funding decisions. Visit the NCCIH Funding Strategy webpage to learn more.


  Quarterly Course Spotlight

Getting Started in Grant Writing: An Introduction for Graduate Students, Postdocs, and New Faculty

Across professions and academic levels, an understanding of grants and what it takes to find them and submit proposals are critical skills. This webinar will demystify the process of grant proposal writing. Following a high-level overview of the major phases of proposal development, the webinar will look more closely at the process of finding and selecting funding opportunities that are a good fit for your research or program priorities. The runtime is 45 minutes and 41 seconds.

Learning Objectives - By the end of this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Identify major phases in grant proposal development.
  • Locate relevant sources of information on funding opportunities.
  • Summarize information found in a Request for Proposals.
  • Outline the steps to go from proposal concept to proposal submission.

ATSU Research, Grants, and Scholarly Innovations encourages faculty to take advantage of our subscription to CITI's all-access webinar package. You can access the menu of CITI webinars through the Resources tab in ATSU's Sponsored Programs portal or directly through the CITI homepage

If you are new to the CITI program, you will need to register (create) a new account which will include creating a CITI username and password, and then follow the instructions for the ATSU campus that you are affiliated with. 

HRSA Needs Rural Reviewers for 2023 Grant Applications

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) relies on grant reviewers to select the best programs from a competitive group of applicants. Over the coming months, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy will be competing in a number of programs, including among other things: substance use disorders and opioid use disorder, rural workforce, and rural hospitals. Having reviewers with expertise in rural health greatly benefits the review process and is also an opportunity to learn about the review process itself.

Reviews are typically held remotely over a period of a few days and reviewers who participate and complete their assigned duties receive an honorarium. Registration is easy and does not commit you to serving as a reviewer. Please consider lending your expertise to these important initiatives.

Need Help Navigating DMSP Requirements? 

The A.T. Still Memorial Library is Here to Help!

NIH's new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy went into effect January 25, 2023. This policy requires that all NIH-funded research describe in detail how scientific data will be shared and managed in a useable format. Data must also be preserved within a specialized repository. Research teams are required to provide this information within a 2-page supplemental document known as the Data Monitoring and Sharing Plan (DMSP). While NIH led this initiative, many other funders have adopted the policy's requirements.

The DMSP is typically completed at the beginning of a research project (or during grant proposal development) and encourages early consideration and planning for research data management needs. To satisfy the new requirements, your DMSP must include essential information about how you will collect, store, describe, and share your data.

The purpose of the required DMSP is to promote a culture of change around data sharing and to encourage data sharing and reuse as the norm in the scientific community. It is expected these new requirements will accelerate biomedical research discovery, enhance research rigor and reproducibility, provide accessibility to high-value datasets, promote reuse of data for future research, and expedite translation of research results into knowledge to improve health practices and outcomes. 

Please refer to ATSU's Research Data Management LibGuide for an overview of the new requirements and University resources available to support your data service needs. You may also contact CJ Garcia, data librarian, at for assistance.
