I-Corps Application Information


The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) PA-18-517 lists the I-Corps eligibility requirements and required application materials. Once you have reviewed the FOA in full, click the “Apply” button in Part I of the FOA. You will be directed to the ASSIST online submission system. Applications are only submitted digitally through ASSIST—do not mail any materials to an NIH/CDC location.


Here are a sample application cover sheet and sample application excerpt.

Applications for the Summer 2018 I-Corps session must be received by March 5, 2018, 5:00 p.m. your local time.
