The purpose of the Ruth L.
Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (Kirschstein-NRSA) is to provide support to individuals for combined MD/PhD and other dual doctoral degree training (e.g.
DO/PhD, DDS/PhD, AuD/PhD).
The participating Institutes award this Kirschstein-NRSA
individual fellowship (F30) to qualified applicants with the potential to become productive, independent, highly trained physician-scientists and other clinician-scientists, including patient-oriented researchers in their scientific mission areas.
This funding opportunity supports individual predoctoral F30 fellowships with the expectation that these training opportunities will increase the number of future investigators with both clinical knowledge and skills in basic, translational or clinical research.
Mechanism of Support:
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the NIH Ruth L.
Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) mechanism for Individual Predoctoral MD/PhD and other dual-degree Fellows (F30).
Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards:
The total amount to be awarded by participating ICs and the number of F30 fellowships awarded will depend on the quality and scientific merit of the applications received, relevance to the program priorities of the participating NIH Institutes or Centers (ICs), and the availability of funds.
