NIH Interdisciplinary Training Program in Cancer and HIV/AIDS Research

Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Fellowships from either an NIH Kirschstein-NRSA training grant or the FHCRC exist for postdoctoral and predoctoral trainees who wish to be involved with interdisciplinary research. The purpose of this program is to provide funds for research projects that are truly interdisciplinary in nature. The applicant must identify two mentors from different fields of research who will contribute meaningfully to the training program. The Interdisciplinary Training Grant specifically requires that the project be related to cancer or HIV. If you are applying for an Interdisciplinary Training Grant position, please be sure to specify how your project is relevant to these areas of research.

NIH Interdisciplinary Training Grant Fellowship

The trainee must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national (persons born in possessions of the United States, i.e., American Samoa), or have permanent resident status. NIH training grant funding guidelines stipulate that no individual trainee may receive more than 5 years of aggregate Kirschstein-NRSA support at the predoctoral level and 3 years of aggregate Kirschstein-NRSA support at the postdoctoral level, including any combination of support from Kirschstein-NRSA institutional research training grants and individual fellowships. Therefore, trainees who have already received this level of NIH funding are not eligible to apply for the training grant fellowships. Support from NIH research project grants awarded to faculty do not count towards the 3 year eligibility rule.

Note that this training grant is managed through the University of Washington, so your paycheck and benefits will be UW-based. The NIH training grant pays approximately 60% of predoctoral tuition. The remaining 40% must come from a non-federal source, provided by the trainee's mentor.

Please be sure to check the appropriate box on your application if you are eligible to receive an NIH Training Grant slot (meaning you are a US citizen or permanent resident/green card holder).
