NIH Suggested Cover Letter Format

The NIH Division of Receipt and Referral (DRR), Center for Scientific Review (CSR) strongly suggests that Principal Investigators use a specific format for cover letters requesting assignment to an Institute or Center (IC) and/or a Scientific Review Group (SRG). Officials believe that a consistent outline for the cover letter will shorten the time from submission to review. Special formatting requested by NIH include the following:

  • List one request per line.

  • Place IC and SRG review requests (if applicable) on separate lines.

  • Place positive and negative requests (if applicable) on separate lines.

  • Include name of IC or SRG, followed by a dash and the acronymDo not use parentheses.

  • Provide explanations for each request in a separate paragraph.

A sample cover letter is shown below:
