Frequently Asked Questions

Should I write a cover memo with my application?


It is a good idea to write a cover memo if your application is not responding to a Request for Applications and 1) you want to point out to the Assignment & Referral Officer particular types of expertise that would be needed for appropriate scientific review that may not be obvious from the abstract, or 2) you have discussed the application with a program officer from NIA and she or he feels it would be relevant to NIA program emphases.
