Frequently Asked Questions

We received an error message that our K07 application was missing letters from referrers. Yet the FOA for the Senior Leadership award for which I am applying indicates that no reference letters are necessary.

At the present time, the software cannot distinguish between the developmental K07 (which does require reference letters) and the leadership K07 (which does not require reference letters). Since you are applying for a leadership K07, you can ignore the error message.  NIH will accept the application without reference letters if it is for a Senior Leadership award.
