After years of decline, the percentage of applications that resulted in National Institutes of Health grants for individual researchers—R01s and their equivalent—showed a slight uptick in 2014, according to NIH data released this month. The success rate, a gauge of the difficulty of getting an NIH grant, will be watched closely to see if a more positive trend for researchers has emerged.

NOTE: All data are for R01 or equivalent awards: R23, R29, and R37. Actual dollars awarded without adjustment for inflation. SOURCE: NIH Data Book
