National Research Service Awards (NRSA)
  • Established by the NRSA Act of 1974
  • Individual Fellowships (F31, F32, F33)
  • Institutional Training Grants (T32, T35)
  • Only NIH award that goes to an individual

  • 3 years support for post-doctoral fellows
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Pay back provisions

NRSA Grant Application
  • Scholastic Performance
  • Research Experience / Training Plan
  • Personal Data Form
  • Biographical Sketch
  • Facilities and Commitment
  • Criteria for evaluation
  • candidate
  • training plan
  • success of training program

Individual NRSA Grants
  • F31 Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research
    Service Award Predoctoral Fellowship
  • support for research training leading to a Ph.D.
    (or the equivalent research degree) or a combined
    M.D./Ph.D. (or other combined professional
    research doctoral degrees) in the biomedical or
    behavioral sciences
  • F32 Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research
    Service Award Postdoctoral Fellowship
  • support for postdoctoral research training to
    individuals to broaden their scientific
    background and extend their potential for
    research in specified health related areas

Institutional NRSA Grants
  • T32 NRSA Institutional Training Grants
  • support training opportunities at the predoctoral
    or postdoctoral level at qualified institutions
  • Program Director is responsible for selecting the
    trainees and administering the program
  • T36 - Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC)
  • support to increase the number of well-trained
    minority scientists in biomedical disciplines and
    strengthen the research and teaching capabilities
    of minority institutions

NIH Career Development Programs
  • Purposes include to provide
  • mentored development of research careers
  • transitions of career emphasis
  • protected time for research by clinicians
  • support for outstanding scientists with a
    sustained level of high productivity
  • 13 different mechanisms
  • Match with the stage of career
  • Mentored, Mid-career, Senior
  • Can be interactive with other NIH Awards
  • Different availabilities/eligibilities at each

Mentored Research Grants
  • K01 Mentored Research Scientist Development
  • provide research scientists with a sponsored
    research experience that will help the applicant
    gain expertise in a new research area or
    demonstrably enhance the applicants scientific
  • Replaced July 2, 2006 by the NIH Pathway to
  • K22 Career Transition Award
  • support newly trained investigators (basic or
    clinical) to develop their independent research
    skills through a two phase program.
  • initial period involves an intramural appointment
    at the NIH
  • final period of support is conducted at an
    extramural institution.
  • research in Cancer Prevention Control

NIH Pathway to Independence Award K99/R00
  • Postdoctoral scientists receive both mentored
    independent research support from the same award
  • 1-2 year mentored phase (K99)
  • independent phase, occurs in years 3-5 (R00)
  • Goal to facilitate awardee
  • secure an assistant professorship (or equivalent)
  • establish an independent research program
  • apply for an investigator-initiated grant

Consider the review criteria
  • The candidate your background and potential to
    develop into an independent researcher
  • Research plan its scientific merit,
    significance, feasibility relationship to your
    career plans
  • Training/career development plan its components
    how well it fits the research plan
  • The sponsor his/her track record as both a
    researcher and mentor
  • Institutional environment commitment to the
    training/career development of the candidate

Identifying a Sponsor/Mentor
  • With a track record of successful training and
  • With a commitment to you your career goals
  • He/she need not be your research advisor
  • More than one is OK!
  • Should have

Institutional Commitment
  • To your time
  • To your professional development
  • To your research efforts
  • Protected time

Mentored Clinical Grants
  • K08 Mentored Clinical Scientist Development
  • Support the development of outstanding clinical
    research scientists
  • Provide specialized study for clinically trained
    professionals who are committed to a career in
    research and have the potential to develop into
    independent research scientists
  • K12 Mentored Clinical Scientist Development
    Program Award
  • Support newly trained clinicians appointed by an
    institution for development of independent
    research skills and experience in a fundamental
    science within the framework of an
    interdisciplinary research and development
  • K23 Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career
    Development Award
  • support for the career development of
    investigators who focus their research endeavors
    on patient-oriented research
  • provides support for a period of supervised study
    and research for clinically trained professionals

Other Award Mechanisms
  • R15 Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA)
  • support small-scale research projects conducted
    by faculty in domestic institutions that
    primarily award baccalaureate degrees
  • S06 Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS)
  • provide funds to strengthen the biomedical
    research and research training capability of
    ethnic minority institutions, thus creating a
    more favorable environment for increasing the
    involvement of minority faculty and students in
    biomedical research
  • K07 Academic Career Award
  • support
  • junior candidates who are interested in
    developing academic and research expertise in a
    specific area
  • senior individuals with acknowledged scientific
    expertise and leadership skills who are
    interested in improving the curricula and
    enhancing research capability within an academic
