Helpful Information for Faculty and Staff Involved with National Institutes of Health (NIH) Training Grants
NIH training grants, also known as National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional grants or as T32 or T35 grants, support predoctoral, postdoctoral, and short-term research training experiences. The information provided in this Web site is meant to be a resource to assist University of Pittsburgh faculty and staff in preparing training grant proposals. It is not meant to replace NIH guidelines.
Specific NIH institutes, centers, and offices may have special policies and requirements for their training grants and may provide sample tables and suggested formats for the information that must be included in the proposal (also called the training program plan). Therefore, applicants should be sure to check with the prospective training grant contact people for each NIH institute, center, or office.
