The Jointly Sponsored NIH Predoctoral Training Program in the Neurosciences supports 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.
Applicant organizations may submit only one application in response to this FOA.
For institutions with similar programs, the PD(s)/PI(s) must explain what distinguishes this program from the others, how their programs will synergize with one another, if applicable, and make it clear that the pools of faculty and potential trainees, and existing resources, are robust enough to support additional programs.
Application budgets are not limited, but need to reflect actual needs of the proposed project. The award period is up to five years. Kirschstein-NRSA awards provide stipends as a subsistence allowance to help defray living expenses during the research and clinical training experiences. NIH will contribute to the combined cost of tuition and fees at the rate in place at the time of award.
