National Research Service Awards_Health Services Research Training - #93.225

Fellowship support is available for full-time health services research training. An institutional allowance is provided to the sponsoring institution for each fellow. Also, research training grants are awarded to institutions to provide support to trainees selected by the training program director at the grantee institution. This support is available for predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees. Offsets for tuition and fees are allowable for trainees, and an amount for training related expenses will be provided. Facilities and administrative costs may be requested at 8 percent of allowable direct costs (less tuition and fees), or the negotiated facilities and administrative cost rate, whichever is less. Postdoctoral fellows and trainees in the first 12 months of postdoctoral NRSA support incur one month of payback obligation for each month of support. The thirteenth and subsequent months of postdoctoral NRSA support are considered payback service for prior postdoctoral support. Predoctoral fellows and trainees do not incur a service payback obligation. Discretionary funds are available.




An individual applicant for a postdoctoral fellowship must document receipt of a doctoral degree and acceptance by an appropriate institutional sponsor. Institutional applicants for training grants must document their research and training experiences, staff, curriculum, facilities, and other resources available. Costs will be determined in accordance with HHS Regulations 45 CFR, Part 74. OMB Circular No. A-87 applies to this program.

For Individual fellowship applications, the following review criteria will be used: (1) The applicant's past academic and research accomplishments; (2) research goals; (3) research training proposed; (4) qualifications of the sponsor; (5) appropriateness of training environment; and (6) reference reports. For Institutional training grant applications, the following review criteria will be used: (1) goals of the proposed training and probability of achievement; (2) substantive content, including courses offered; (3) qualifications and responsibilities of program director and faculty; (4) ability to recruit trainees; (5) extent of institutional participation through provision of necessary space, curriculum time, financial support, and appropriate facilities; (6) documented cooperation of related agencies in providing research experience; (7) proposed number of students; (8) methods for monitoring and evaluating trainees; and (9) reasonableness of budget. In all cases, AHRQ will consider the recommendations of the review committee, the Council program interests, and availability of funds in making the final selection of grantees.
