ADAMHA National Research Service Awards

Address: Westwood Bldg #240, NIH Bethesda, MD 20892
Telephone: 301-594-7248
Website: (Primary)
Website: (Foreign Grants Information)

The acronym “ADAMHA” stands for Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental Health Administration. The ADAMHA is a unit of the Public Health Service (PHS) and consists of three major federal agencies. These include the following:

  • National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
  • National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)
  • National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

The agency administers “research and treatment in areas of substance abuse (alcohol and drugs) and mental health.” The agency was renamed Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration by the ADAMHA Reorganization Act of 1992.

Through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration provides foreign research opportunities. The NIH administers foreign grants, cooperative agreements, and institutional contracts.

Candidates wishing to apply for a grant must conduct research inside or outside of the U.S. They must ensure results articulate that research will benefit not only the local population of that country, but also the health of the American population. The NIH typically grants funding to foreign institutions and students.

The NIH categorizes the type of funding based upon extramural and intramural. The grant a candidate receives is determined by his or her current status. These are the following categories and subcategories of funding:


  • Foreign researchers who will conduct research outside the U.S.
  • Foreign researchers who will conduct research within the U.S.
  • Foreign institutions in collaboration with a U.S. institution.
  • Foreign students who will conduct research within the U.S.
  • U.S. citizens who will conduct research outside of the U.S.


  • Foreign researchers who will conduct research at NIH.
  • Foreign students who will study in the U.S.

Foreign researchers must have a valid work visa in order to conduct research within the U.S. However, they generally are not required to be U.S. citizens. There are some programs that implement a citizenship requirement. For more information, visit the organization’s website.

Grants Process

The grants process includes planning, writing, submitting, receipt, referral, peer review, award, and post-award management. The whole process takes about nine to ten months, not including the last part of the process.

Planning, Writing, and Submitting: Candidates should gather documents, compose the project description, and submit grant applications through, the formal medium.

Receipt and Referral: This part of the grant process runs approximately one to three months. Those applications that fully comply with NIH policies are assigned by the Division of Receipt and Referral within NIH.

The division is located in the Center for Scientific Review (CSR). The CSR later assigns all applications to both the Institute/Center (IC) of NIH and a Scientific Review Group (SRG). A Scientific Review Officer (SRO) further assigns the applications to individual reviewers/readers.

Peer Review: Month four begins the Initial Level of Review process whereby SRG members evaluate applications for scientific merit. The peer review process ranges from the fourth month to the eighth. The SRG members assign Priority Scores, which are available to the principal investigator. The investigator receives a Summary Statement and applications enter a Second Level of Review by the NIH council/board.

Award: By months nine and ten, applicants have been awarded an NIH grant. There is a pre-award process whereby an IC staff member will conduct a “final administrative review” in order to negotiate the applicant’s award. The applicant is then notified by the NIH Institute/Center, who issues a Notice of Award (NoA).

Post-award management includes monitoring the recipient’s project for NIH compliance.

How to Apply

Submitting an application for an NIH grant is dependent upon the type of submission: paper or electronic.

For this reason, it is important to be aware of contact information, dates, and guidelines for submitting an applicant for foreign grant consideration.

As a Grantee, you will be responsible for two types of submissions: 1) Competing Grant Application and 2) Non-Competing Grant Progress Reports.

Information concerning the application and report can be found in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) of the grant to which you are applying. The FOA will provide details concerning the type of submission, whether paper or electronic. Paper submissions require the PHS 398 application. However, electronic submission applicants must use the SF424 R&R application.

Competing Grant Applications

Be aware of general application submission dates. The FOA will provide information about “NIH standard due dates.” The NIH expects candidates to submit applications on time and refers applicants to the NIH Policy on Late Submission of Grant Applications for late submissions.

Electronic Submission

Understanding how to submit an NIH grant application electronically takes time. The website offers tips for applicants. Some of these tips include “Avoiding Common Errors,” “FAQs,” and “Tips for the Principal Investigator.”

To be successful, you will have to develop a submission plan. Your plan should outline the funding opportunity that will be most advantageous to the organization, the responsibility of each research member, application file sharing options (email, drive, and/or portable media), and the deadline for submission of forms. Once you have delegated responsibility to each project member, prepare to submit the application.

Before you can submit an application, you must register with NIH eRA Commons and Below is a list of items you will need before you can register with either site. Steps to Register
