The Hispanics who intend to apply for a grant from the US government should plan it accordingly so that their grant meet the requirement that they are looking for as well as their grant is sanctioned in the very first attempt that they take.
Applying for the grant for Hispanics is not very difficult. The only thing is that they need to plan it out keeping enough time in their hand. There are websites that come up with clear concept of the steps that should be taken for a proper application of the grants.
If you can divide the process of application into three different stages namely planning, writing and submitting. This is followed by receipt and referral and then by peer review and then the award.
The planning of the application is one of the most basic things while you are applying for the grant. The applicant should start as early as possible and collect all preliminary data that is required to determine internal deadlines.
The writing of the application is an important part that the applicant should not overlook at all and this should be written several months prior to the application due date. Then the application must be submitted to NIH through Federal portal, Grants.gov.
Then the application is received and is assigned for review by Division of Receipt and Referral in the Center of Scientific Review (CSR). Then CSR assigns it to NIH Institute/Center (IC) and a Scientific Review Group (SRG).
The SRO or the Scientific Review Officer assigns the application to reviewer and readers. SRG members then evaluate and review the application for scientific merits. After the initial review of the application it is sent for a second level of reviews.
The pre award process of the grant involves the management staff to conduct the final administrative review and negotiates awards. The NIH Institute/Center (IC) issues and sends Notice of Award (NoA) to the applicant or the institution or the organization. It is then that the post award management process begins.
