National Eye Institute

Specific provisions of the National Eye Institute administration of

the NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08) are

amended as follows:


The NEI wants to alert clinical investigators that it has broadened

the guidelines of its program to include the disciplines of

biostatistics and epidemiology.

Candidate Salary Requests:

Although PHS grant recipients are subject to a legislatively imposed

salary cap (currently $125,000), the NEI itself does not impose any

special cap on salary requests.  The salary request should be

reasonable and conform to the established, consistently applied

policy of the applicant institution for other staff members of

equivalent qualifications, rank, and responsibilities.  The salary

request should reflect no more than the percentage of time actually

devoted to the project.

Research Development Support:

The NEI will allow up to $20,000 per year for the research project

requirements, e.g., technical personnel costs, supplies, equipment,

principal investigator's travel, and tuition, fees, and books related

to the career development program.  Salary for mentors, secretarial

and administrative assistance is not allowed.


Inquiries are encouraged, particularly during the planning phase of

the application.  Direct inquiries to:
