NIH Fellowship Application Problem

Today, June 10, 2016, the National Institutes of Health informed the research community that there is a temporary issue with the application form packages associated with the fellowship funding opportunity announcements listed in the NIH Guide Notice Form Correction Made for All NIH Fellowship Opportunities (NOT-OD-16-106).

The application forms packages posted with these opportunities on June 3, 2016 included an incorrect version of the PHS Fellowship Supplemental Form. This posting error was corrected the evening of June 7, 2016.

Anyone who started a grant application for any of these opportunities prior to June 8, 2016 must return to the funding opportunity announcement and begin again.

The ASSIST system recognized the posting issue and prevented users from initiating an application with the incorrect form package. If you attempted to initiate an application prior to June 8 and received an error, you can now safely initiate your application.
