Training Grants

What Are National Institutes of Health (NIH) Training Grants?

National Institutes of Health (NIH) training grants are also referred to as Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional grants. The NIH identification numbering system uses activity code T32 to identify institutional research training grants. NIH T32 grants are provided to an eligible institution to develop or enhance research training opportunities for individuals selected by the institution.

Training grants are used to support pre-doctoral Biostatistics students who are U. S. citizens or permanent U. S. residents (green card holders). Appointment to a training grant is recognition of academic promise and distinction and, in some cases, provides additional training opportunities.

Predoctoral Training Grants

The Division of Biostatistics has a number of funded T32 training grants to which eligible students may be appointed.
