Below you will find the forms most commonly used by Principal Investigators and collaborators with Meharry Medical College. Additional, rights-only forms may be accessed via log-in to Meharry’s intranet system.
The forms are either Word or Excel documents with Meharry formulae/percentages already configured for you or PDFs upon which you can make direct entries. Either the Word/Excel file or the PDF form should be saved in your files with a unique name for your project. If for some reason you are unable to complete the form on-screen, you may download the form (that is, save the document to your computer), enter the information and send it to the Office for Research as an email attachment: NIH Forms, Including PHS 398, PHS 2590, PHS 416-1.
Many projects will require approval and oversight by one of Meharry’s institutional committees. Information about obtaining approval from the Institutional Review Board (human subjects research), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (animal research), or Institutional Biosafety Committee (hazardous and infectious material) is available through the OfRI’s Regulatory Affairs Unit.
PLEASE NOTE that grant submissions will transition to a cloud-based management platform in 2021. The new system being deployed is Kuali Sponsored Programs. Training and timelines will be announced accordingly.
Notify us as soon as you decide to apply for a grant, even if you haven’t started writing the application. Depending upon your situation, you may need to have your application edited by the OfRI Services & Support Unit and have your content scientifically reviewed via a Studio or other pre-submission peer review mechanism. We need your final documents two weeks before the submission date.
When all is in order, the application will be signed and submitted through grants.gov or according to the sponsor’s instructions.
Whether you are an investigator at Meharry or are collaborating with a Meharry researcher, you may find the important numbers and codes section of the Grants Management page and the forms below useful in the application process.
