1 The percentile payline for new investigator R01 applications is 5% higher, i.e. 24%. See policy at https://www.nibib.nih.gov/news-events/newsroom/nibib-funding-policy-supports-new-investigators
2 The Expand Opportunity Zone (EOZ) is approximated twice the payline. Applications within the EOZ may be selected for funding based on the criteria outlined at https://www.nibib.nih.gov/research-funding/expanded-opportunity-zone. The EOZ for R01 and R03 applications is from the 20th to the 38th percentile. For new investigator applications, the EOZ is from the 25th to the 43rd percentile.
3The NIBIB implemented a new policy for R21s beginning in FY17. As part of the new policy, R21 funding is based on programmatic considerations. See Guide Notice at https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-EB-16-009.html. Please note that for FY18 there is a new NIBIB R21 FOA at https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-17-441.html which has replaced NIBIB participation on the Parent R21 FOA (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-16-161.html and the EBRG FOA https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-16-040.html.
4The NIBIB Trailblazer R21 is a new initiative for New and Early Stage Investigators. Trailblazer funding is based on programmatic considerations. Read more at https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-16-390.html
5No fixed payline exists for P41 and U01 awards. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis based on programmatic considerations. Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) U01s do not receive any administrative cuts.
6No fixed payline exists for F, K, T32, SBIR and STTR grants. A limited number of awards are available for highly meritorious applications. Funding decisions are also based on programmatic considerations and available funds.
