All accepted applications are reviewed for scientific merit by an appropriate initial review group and by a national advisory council. National Research Service Award (NRSA) applications for the support of individual fellows and other applications requesting less than $50,000 direct costs per year are not reviewed by the council.) All approved applications compete for available funds on the basis of scientific merit and program emphasis.

Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,

intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
