The NIH recently announced that ORCID IDs will soon be required for many grants offered by the NIH, AHRQ and CDC. This requirement focuses on individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards. Some awards will require ORCID IDs as early as October 2019, while others will begin to require ORCID IDs in January 2020. For the awards affected by this change, the eRA system will validate that ORCID IDs have been linked with eRA Commons profiles, and applicants without a linked ORCID ID will not be accepted. See the eRA guidance for linking an ORCID ID with a Commons profile.
