The sponsors provide support for broad and fundamental research training in the neurosciences via institutional NRSA research training grants (T32) at domestic institutions of higher education. Trainees appointed to this training grant are financially supported for either one or two years, during the first 2 years of their graduate research training. The primary objective is to prepare individuals for careers in neuroscience that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. This program will use the NIH T32 Institutional National Research Service Award (NRSA) mechanism.
This program will use the NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service (T32) award mechanism. Awards for T32 institutional NRSA research training grants may be for project periods up to five years in duration and are renewable. Trainees are required to pursue full-time research training. Allowable costs under this award are stipends, tuition and fees, trainee travel, training related expenses, and F&A costs at 8 percent of modified total direct costs. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research training programs will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. Kirschstein- NRSA awards provide stipends as a subsistence allowance to help defray living expenses during the research training experience. NIH will contribute to the combined cost of tuition and fees at the rate in place at the time of award. Trainee travel to attend scientific meetings and workshops that the institution determines to be necessary for the individual’s research training experience is an allowable trainee expense. Up to $750 travel allowance per year per trainee will be awarded, to be used exclusively for trainee travel.
