  Years of  
  Experience  
  Stipend for FY  
  2017  
0 $47,484
1 $47,844
2 $48,216
3 $50,316
4 $52,140

Note: Similarly to every predoctoral student and postdoctoral fellow funded by a National Research Service Award (NRSA) training grant, the difference between the PhD student's stipend or postdoctoral fellow's salary and the TL1-funded component cannot be made up from another federal grant since this is how NIH defines "cost-sharing" and no cost-sharing is allowed on NRSA grants. For example, if a mentor wants to pay their postdoctoral fellow with 1 year of experience more than $47,844, that mentor can only use non-US government funds to make up the difference. However, will need to work with TL1 Director for approval.
