Training Grants Supported by NINR

NIH National Research Service Award (NSRA) individual fellowships (F31 and F32) and institutional training grants (T32) allow recipients to receive training in clinical research.

NINR has produced a short guidance document summarizing the specific instructions for applicants who are proposing to gain clinical trial research experience (CTRE) through an F31, F32, or T32 award.

The training mechanisms supported by NINR are summarized on this page. Click on the link to the announcement for more details. Scroll to the bottom of the page for NIH training resources. For more information on research funding mechanisms offered by NINR, download the NINR Mechanism Table (PDF). This table provides a brief summary of the training mechanisms supported by NINR, as well as other mechanisms supported by the Institute.

The National Research Service Awards (NRSA) enable scientists to be trained to conduct independent nursing research and to collaborate in interdisciplinary research through individual and institutional predoctoral, postdoctoral, and senior fellowships. NINR currently supports F31, F32, F33 and T32 mechanisms of funding for fellowship grants.

Career Development Awards (K awards) are fully described at the linked NIH site (the NIH K Kiosk). NINR supports only the K01, K23, K24 and K99 Career Development Awards at this time.

Mentored Research Scientist Development Awards (K01) are available to doctorally-prepared scientists who need a mentored research experience with an expert sponsor as a way to gain expertise in an area that is new to the candidate or would demonstrably enhance the candidate's scientific career.
