Grants and Funding

An overview of grants and funding resources for the Hopkins community.

NIH Resources

The NIH Office of Extramural Research provides quick links to forms and applications that applicants will need to initiate the application process.

The NIH offers a Guide for Grants and Contracts, the official publication for NIH medical and behavioral research grant policies, guidelines and funding opportunities.

NIH released a Genomic Data Sharing Policy. This policy applies to all NIH-funded research (e.g., grants, contracts, intramural research) that generates large-scale human or non-human genomic data, regardless of the funding level, as well as the use of these data for subsequent research.


The NIH RePORTER database contains information about ongoing research projects and awards.

Below are just a few of the NIH institutes.  For more information, see the NIH listing.

NIH Tips for Applicants

NIH Data Sharing Policies

It is NIH policy that the results and accomplishments of the activities that it funds should be made available to the public. PIs and funding recipient institutions are expected to make the results and accomplishments of their activities available to the research community and to the public at large.

Below are links that highlight selected NIH policies and related guidance on sharing of research resources developed with NIH funding.

NIH Biosketch Tool

A new Biographical Sketch format, using SciENcv, is required for all NIH- and AHRQ-funded grants. As of October 2015, the NIH has made clarifications to the Biosketch requirement, which can be found at the end of this announcement.

For instructions, see the NLM Technical Bulletin's blog post or view the YouTube video tutorial.

Find more information on the new Biosketch format and SciENcv updates for grant applications with due dates after May 24, 2015.
