A notice of grand funding opportunity. Funding opportunities include a description of the opportunity as well as information on award and award administration, eligibility, application and submission instructions, application review, agency contacts, and other information regarding the funding opportunity.
Funding opportunity announcements may be known as program announcements, requests for applications, notices of funding availability, solicitations, or other names depending on the agency and type of program. Funding opportunity announcements can be found at
Grants.gov/Find and in the
NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. In addition, NIH and other HHS Agencies have developed omnibus Parent Announcements for common grant mechanisms that have transitioned to electronic submission, for use by applicants who wish to submit what were formerly termed "unsolicited" or "investigator-initiated" applications.
At UC San Diego, it is very important for your HS SPPO Analyst to know what it is you are applying to, especially if we are a consortium/subaward. HS SPPO will use the FOA to determine the appropriate office the proposal should go through, either HS SPPO, OCGA, or Graduate Division (if it is a non-professional graduate fellowship application).
