NCI supports the best scientists and research projects through a rigorous grant application and peer review process.
NCI understands that researchers applying for grants want to know about their chances of receiving funding for their grant applications. Therefore, every fiscal year, NCI makes its funding strategy information publicly available. For more information about how NCI makes funding decisions, see NCI Funding Determinations.
Funding Policy for FY 2016 Research Project Grant Awards
In FY 2016, NCI will not make reductions in budgets for ongoing (non-competing) grants. Decisions on competing grants will continue to be based on review of individual applications.
