How to Find NIA Funding Opportunities

Are you a researcher looking for funding opportunities from NIA? You’ve come to the right place!

Funding Opportunity Announcements from the NIH Grants Guide

To find Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) from NIA, visit the NIH Grants Guide. On the Grants Guide, you can search by keyword, grant type, release date, expiration date, and more. The FOAs have all the information you’ll need about the funding opportunity, including the name and contact information for the NIA Program Officer in charge of this research area.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Funding Opportunities

To see a list of all the open Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias FOAs, visit our Alzheimer’s Disease Funding Opportunities page. This page will be updated each time we add new grant announcements in this important research area.

Approved Concepts from National Advisory Council on Aging (NACA) Meetings

To support researchers in planning and crafting grant applications, NIA now posts information on approved concepts after each NACA meeting. This allows researchers to begin preparing their applications before the FOAs are posted to the NIH Grants Guide. Read the latest concepts and sign up for e-alerts from the NIA blog, Inside NIA, to be the first to know when new approved concepts are posted.
