Grants.gov submission system is changing!
The Grants.gov system is transitioning from Adobe-based forms to an online WORKSPACE. The downloaded legacy forms package and submission process will be valid only until December 31, 2017. In addition, because of the new software system, all packages downloaded prior to February 18, 2017, will have to be downloaded again. Regardless, you will need the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader, available for free at adobe.com.
Grants.gov is an electronic system, not a grant-making organization. Through Grants.gov, each grant-making agency issues announcements and provides a window where applications can be submitted. The agency then retrieves applications, reviews them, and processes awards separately.
Lastly, grants.gov does not provide financial assistance such as student loans, or financial aid; and it does not process applications for other federal financial assistance programs such as Social Security.
Registration: DO NOT TRY TO REGISTER IN GRANTS.GOV!
Individuals who are applying for an award that is granted directly must register to submit an application. All other grant opportunities, such as an NIH R01-Individual Investigator Award, are awarded to organizations, which do not require the Principal Investigator or Project Director to register. Queens College is the official applicant for these grants and is already registered.
You can, however, sign up to receive notices about upcoming grant opportunities in your area of research or expertise. Click here to Sign Up!
