Notice: Links Not Allowed in NIH Grant Applications

Grant applications are not allowed to link out to internet addresses, according to the NIH grant applications policy.

The policy was established for reasons of confidentiality related to outside websites, and of page limitations. Primary Investigators are reminded to review the pertinent grants writing process here.

The section on Additional Elements Required in a Grant Application refers to the use of internet sites policy as follows: "NIH instituted a policy that prohibits the use of World Wide Web addresses (URLs) in grant applications in the place of text describing the same material. This is because of the potential for providing a large amount of extra material from a web site beyond what would fit in the page limit, and thereby giving an unfair advantage to some applicants and a large additional burden for reviewers."
