APAGS develops, endorses and disseminates information to students about relevant education and training issues, legislative positions and developments, and future directions or changes in the field, through printed resources and the Web site; and APAGS creates and supports opportunities for students in the form of scholarships and awards, association advocacy work, and a host of development activities.


NIH Enhancing Peer Review

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a longstanding history of supporting the most promising and meritorious research. Effective as of January 25, 2010 Enhanced Review Criteria will be used on submitted grant applications. One of the priorities of the NIH Enhancing Peer Review initiative is to Improve the Quality and Transparency of Review. One of the goals associated with this priority is to shorten the Research Plan and align it with review criteria.
