Training Funding Opportunities

NINR research areas of interest and supported training mechanisms are summarized on this page. For more information on research funding mechanisms offered by NINR, view the Grant Programs Supported By NINR.

The National Research Service Awards (NRSA) enable scientists to be trained to conduct independent nursing research and collaborate in interdisciplinary research through individual and institutional predoctoral, postdoctoral, and senior fellowships. NINR currently supports several  fellowship grants.

NIH National Research Service Award (NSRA) individual fellowships (F31 and F32) and institutional training grants (T32) allow recipients to receive training in clinical research. The Guidance for NINR F31/F32 applicants proposing to gain clinical trial research experience (CTRE) summarizes instructions for applicants proposing to gain clinical trial research experience (CTRE) through these awards.

NINR supports K01, K23, K24 and K99 Career Development Awards (K awards). More information can be found at the NIH K Kiosk

The NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) aim to recruit and retain health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers, repaying up to $50,000 annually of a researcher's qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research. NINR supports LRP applications from health professionals with doctoral degrees. NINR will give highest priority to applications from nurse scientists.
