Frequently Asked Questions

Question:

How many years of funding will the grant cover?

Answer:

TL1 will fund up to two years.

Note: Similarly to every predoctoral student and postdoctoral fellow funded by an NRSA training grant, total NRSA support is limited to 5 years for predoctoral trainees (6 years for dual-degree training, e.g., MD/PhD, DO/PhD, DDS/PhD, AuD/PhD, DVM/PhD), and 3 years for postdoctoral fellows. The NIH provides eight levels of postdoctoral stipends to accommodate individuals who complete other forms of health-related training prior to accepting a Kirschstein-NRSA supported position. (The presence of eight discrete levels of experience, however, does not constitute an endorsement of extended periods of postdoctoral research training.) see NIH policy on this matter Click here for more information
