K99/R00 Sample Applications

An NIA Investigator has graciously agreed to share their exceptional applications and summary statements as samples to help the research community. The resources below represent the initial submission and subsequent resubmission of a K99/R00 application from a single applicant, who received an excellent score and was funded upon resubmission. This is only one example of a successful K99/R00 application and is not meant to be a template for future applicants. Please make sure that your application is tailored to your specific research and career development plan, and seek individual advice from mentors and peers as you prepare your application. Read more about K99/R00 funding opportunities at NIA.

  • Reminders:

    • Always follow your funding opportunity's instructions for application format. Although these applications demonstrate good grantsmanship, time has passed since these grantees applied. The samples may not reflect the latest format or rules.
    • Copyright Notice. The awardee allows you to use the material (e.g., data, writing, graphics) it shared in this application only for nonprofit educational purposes provided the material remains unchanged and the principal investigator, awardee organization, and NIH NIA are credited.
