For Extramural LRP Applicant: Reference Letters and Monitoring Submissions

For Extramural Applicants

As an extramural LRP applicant, in addition to filling out an application, you must also have colleagues/mentors submit reference letters in support of your application, and your institutional business official (IBO) must attest to certain certifications about you.

A minimum of three reference letters (7,500 character/2 page limit) is required for an LRP applicant, and no more than five will be accepted. For mentored research scientists, one of the reference letters must be from the mentor.

NOTE: In addition to submitting a reference letter, the mentor should also provide an NIH-formatted biosketch to the applicant, as the applicant must upload it to the application.
