Postdocs will have an added incentive to pursue NIH training grant awards thanks to a new incentive program from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation. The program, which applies to NIH F32 award recipients and NIH T32- supported trainees, provides $1,000 per year in research support to F32 recipients and provides tuition differentials to T32-supported trainees.

The policy changes will help standardize the support the research office provides to all F32- and T32- supported trainees, said David Conover, vice president for research and innovation.

“This change is part of our ongoing commitment to streamlining research administration,” Conover said. “We encourage trainees and training program directors to secure funding from the NIH to advance their research careers.”
