Choosing the Right Funding Source book
This chapter is divided into three parts-Part I: “Developing Your Grant-Funding Plan” provides strategic advice for launching your grantsmanship career in collaboration with a mentor. Part II: “Choosing the Appropriate Funding Mechanism for Your Early Grants” goes over considerations in choosing the right funding source. Part III goes on to provide “Step-by-Step Advice for Finding the Right Funding Source at NIH.” Navigating the NIH grant system can be overwhelming; however, NIH is the most typical funding source for epidemiology and preventive medicine, particularly for larger awards-the ultimate career goal. Indeed, the NIH Office of Extramural Research is the largest funder of biomedical research in the world, and NIH funds research in just about every area that’s remotely related to human health and disease.
