Institutional Training Grants

These types of grants, offered by the National Institutes of Health, are awarded to an individual institution as the primary means of supporting graduate, postdoctoral, and early career research training. The primary objective is to prepare qualified individuals for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. These programs support predoctoral, postdoctoral and new faculty research training programs at domestic institutions of higher education.
