The newly revised Public Health Service Individual National Research

Service Award application form -- PHS 416-1 -- is available.  This

revision, dated 10/91, and approved through 10/31/94, replaces the

current version that was revised 7/88, reprinted with a 4/89 date, and

approved through 4/30/91.  Applicants should use the new form starting

with the September 10, 1992, receipt date, although the older, 4/89

revision will be accepted for that deadline.  Applicants submitting for

deadlines after September 1992 must use the new form.

The newly revised fellowship application contains a number of changes

that should facilitate the application process.  Some of the more

important changes include:

o The review and award schedule for the Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental

Health Administration (ADAMHA) and the Agency for Health Care Policy

and Research (AHCPR) has been added.  ADAMHA and AHCPR use the same

receipt dates as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), but have a

different review and award schedule.

o The Introduction section has been expanded to provide information on

the level of fellowships (predoctoral, postdoctoral, and senior)

available at the three PHS funding agencies, and what, if any, budget

information is requested in the application.

o Item 17.  Applicant's Training/Employment, on form page 2, was

modified to consolidate non-degree training, other research and

professional experience, and employment into one item.

o A request for the name, institution, and department of individuals

submitting reference letters was added to Section 3 of the Table of

Contents, form page 3.  This information will be helpful in avoiding

potential conflict of interest situations in review.

o An explanation of the required documentation regarding gender and

minority representation in study populations has been added to the

instructions for the research proposal (page 10).

o The Assurances/Certifications sections on the Checklist page have

been reformatted and updated.  All the updates are in Section

II-Sponsoring Institution, and include a revised Misconduct in Science

assurance, and a new assurance on Age Discrimination.
