The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L.
Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) to eligible institutions as the primary means of supporting predoctoral and postdoctoral research training to help ensure that
a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles related to the Nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research agenda.
The primary objective of the T32 program is to prepare qualified individuals for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation.
This program supports predoctoral and postdoctoral research training programs (including those with short term research training) at domestic institutions of higher education with the T32 funding mechanism.
Note that programs solely for short-term research training should not apply to this announcement, but rather the separate (T35) NRSA Short-Term Institutional program exclusively reserved for predoctoral and/or postdoctoral level short-term research training programs (see PA-10-037).
Mechanism of Support:
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the Ruth L.
Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32).
Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards:
Because the nature and scope of the proposed research training will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary.
The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
