Writing a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant proposal requires expressing your themes, preliminary data, and how you will analyze the new data if the grant is awarded. This requires, among other things, creative thinking and mental concentration. This process is often disrupted by time-consuming trial and error in trying to type or print out forms. Although NIH grant proposal forms can be obtained from research offices or Internet sites at no cost, there is little support available to overcome printing and data entry problems.
