Tips on Writing Cover Letters to NIH

CSR Offers Tips on Cover Letters

While not shared with reviewers, a cover letter submitted to NIH with a grant application can “help in referring your application to a particular review group and give us other information that will help us conduct the review,” according to a post in the applicant section on the website of the Center for Scientific Review. CSR is the division within NIH that reviews the majority of grant applications. The post suggests “popular reasons to use a cover letter,” with details about each; it also explains how such a letter can be composed. CSR also posted its May “Peer Review Notes Newsletter.”
