The NIH institutes and centers implement this award in different ways to 
accommodate the career needs of researchers working in fields related to their 
specific missions.  Not all of the NIH awarding components support the KO7 or 
both components of this award.  Potential applicants are strongly encouraged 
to contact the appropriate NIH program staff listed under “INQUIRIES” at the 
end of this announcement prior to preparing an application.


The Academic Career Award (K07) is used by the NIH Institutes and Centers to 
support individuals interested in introducing or improving curricula in a 
particular scientific field as a means of enhancing the educational or 
research capacity at the grantee institution.    

This Academic Career Award (K07) supports two types of activities:

Development:   The K07 provides up to five years of support for more junior 
candidates who are interested in developing academic and research expertise in 
a particular field, as a way to increase the overall pool of individuals 
capable of research or teaching in the identified area. During the period of 
the award, the candidate will become a successful academician in the chosen 
area.  Teaching, curriculum building, research, and leadership skills are to 
be learned during the tenure of the award.  For junior candidates, a mentor is 

Leadership:  The K07 can also provide from two to five years of support for 
more senior individuals with acknowledged scientific expertise and leadership 
skills who are interested in improving the curricula and enhancing the 
research capacity within an academic institution.  It is expected that support 
under this award will increase the visibility and the overall research support 
or academic capacity for the given field of research within the academic 
medical/health and research community.


The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health promotion 
and disease prevention objectives of "Healthy People 2000," a PHS led national 
activity for setting priority areas.  This Program Announcement (PA), Title of 
PA, is related to one or more of the priority areas.  Potential applicants may 
obtain a copy of "Healthy People 2000" at


Candidates for this award must have a clinical or research doctoral degree.  
Candidates for the Development Award must demonstrate the potential to develop 
into an excellent academician, in the fields of interest to the NIH awarding 
institute or center.  Candidates must be able to identify a mentor who is an 
expert in the research field of interest and has a record of providing the 
type of supervision required by this award.  Candidates must also be able to 
devote at least 75 percent of full-time professional effort to the research 
and developmental programs required for academic development.

Candidates for the Leadership Award must have sufficient clinical training, 
research, or teaching experience in the academic area of interest to the NIH 
to implement a program of curriculum development within the applicant 
institution, must have an academic appointment at a level sufficient to enable 
her/him to exert an influence on the coordination of research, teaching, and 
clinical practice in an emerging field, and must be in a position to devote at 
least 25 but not more than 50 percent effort to the program, a portion of 
which may include research.

Applications may be submitted, on behalf of candidates, by domestic, non-
Federal organizations, public or private, such as medical, dental, or nursing 
schools or other institutions of higher education.  Minorities, women, and 
individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.   At the time of award, 
candidates must be citizens or noncitizen nationals of the United States, or 
must have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence 
(i.e., in possession of a currently valid Alien Registration Receipt Card I-
551, or other legal verification of such status).  Noncitizen nationals are 
generally persons born in outlying possessions of the United States (e.g., 
American Samoa and Swain’s Island).   Individuals on temporary or student 
visas are not eligible.


Awards in response to this program announcement will use the K07 mechanism.  
Planning, direction, and execution of the program will be the responsibility 
of the candidate on behalf of the applicant institution.  However, the 
institution must demonstrate a commitment to the candidate and the candidate’s 
goals for career development.  The project period is up to five years for the 
development award and two to five years for the leadership award.  Awards are 
renewable at the discretion of the NIH awarding unit.  Prospective candidates 
are advised to discuss this issue with the appropriate contact listed under 


A.  Environment: For the leadership award, the sponsoring institution must 
document a strong academic research environment conducive to the development 
and implementation of a new or enhanced academic research program in the area 
of interest to the NIH awarding institute or center.  The institution must 
provide assurance that the candidate is an integral part of its research and 
academic programs.

B.  Program:  The award provides up to five consecutive 12-month awards for 
the duration of the grant.  For the development award, applicants are expected 
to commit at least 75 percent of full- time professional effort to the career 
development program.  The remainder may be devoted to other research-related 
and/or teaching pursuits consonant with the objectives of the award.  For the 
leadership award, applicants are expected to commit at least 25 percent 

C.  Mentor:  For the development award, the recipient must receive appropriate 
mentoring throughout the award.  Where feasible, women and minority mentors 
should be involved as role models.

D.  Allowable Costs

1.  Salary for the Development Award: The NIH will provide salary and fringe 
benefits for the Development Award recipient.  The total salary requested must 
be based on a full-time, 12-month staff appointment.  It must be consistent 
both with the established salary structure at the institution and with 
salaries actually provided by the institution from its own funds to other 
staff members of equivalent qualifications, rank, and responsibilities in the 
department concerned.   If full-time, 12-month salaries are not currently paid 
to comparable staff members, the salary proposed must be appropriately related 
to the existing salary structure.					

Salary limits on career awards are not uniform throughout the NIH and are 
determined independently by each component of the NIH.  In exceptional 
circumstances, individual NIH awarding components may be able to make 
exceptions to their stated maximum levels provided the total salary does not 
exceed the current legislated maximum ($141,300 in Fiscal 2000).  Therefore, 
prospective candidates for the Development Award should contact the NIH 
component to which the application is targeted to ascertain the maximum 
contribution to the candidate’s salary.

The institution may supplement the NIH salary contribution up to a level that 
is consistent with the institution’s salary scale, however, supplementation 
may not be from Federal funds unless specifically authorized by the Federal 
program from which such funds are derived.  Because the salary amount provided 
by this award is based on the full-time institutional salary, funds from other 
NIH awards may not be used  for salary supplementation.  Institutional 
supplementation of salary must not require extra duties or responsibilities 
that would interfere with the purpose of the Development Award.  Under 
expanded authorities, however, institutions may rebudget funds within the 
total costs awarded to cover salaries consistent with the institution’s salary 
scale, provided they do not exceed the current legislated maximum salary.  

2. Salary for the Leadership Award: The NIH will provide salary and fringe 
benefits for the Leadership Award recipient for levels of effort between 25 
and 50 percent.  The actual salary provided by the award is based on the 
candidate’s full-time, 12-month institutional salary and the level of effort 
requested up to the maximum legislated salary rate in effect at the time of 
award.  For example, in Fiscal Year 2000, the maximum allowable annual salary 
is $141,300 for a full-time position.  Therefore, in FY 2000, the maximum 
annual base salary that will be provided for a Leadership Award recipient at 
50 percent effort is $70,650.  In all cases, the salary requested must be 
consistent both with the established salary structure at the institution and 
with salaries actually provided by the institution from its own funds to other 
staff members of equivalent qualifications, rank, and responsibilities in the 
department concerned.   If full-time, 12-month salaries are not currently paid 
to comparable staff members, the salary proposed must be appropriately related 
to the existing salary structure.  The award will also provide fringe benefits 
on the calculated base salary at the established institutional rate.    

The salary limits are not uniform throughout the NIH and are determined 
independently by each component of the NIH. Therefore, prospective candidates 
for the Leadership Award should contact the NIH component to which the 
application is targeted to ascertain the maximum contribution to the 
candidate"s salary.

The institution may supplement the NIH salary contribution up to a level that 
is consistent with the institution"s salary scale. However, institutional 
supplementation of salary must not require extra duties or responsibilities 
that would interfere with the purpose of the Leadership Award.  In addition, 
recipients of this award may derive additional compensation for effort 
associated with other Federal sources or awards, including NIH research 
grants, provided the total salary derived from all Federal sources does not 
exceed the maximum legislated salary rate, and the total percent effort does 
not exceed 100 percent.

2.  Research Support: Research expenses and career development costs may be 
provided at the discretion of the NIH institute or center. Applicants should 
contact the relevant NIH institute or center program staff for additional 

3.  Ancillary Personnel Support: Salary for mentors or for secretarial and/or 
administrative assistants, etc., is not allowed.

4.  Facilities and Administrative Costs: These costs will be reimbursed at 8 
percent of modified total direct costs. 

E. Evaluation:  In carrying out its stewardship of human resource-related 
programs, the NIH may begin requesting information essential to an assessment 
of the effectiveness of this program.  Accordingly, recipients are hereby 
notified, that they may be contacted after the completion of this award for 
periodic updates on various aspects of their employment history, publications, 
support from research grants or contracts, honors and awards, professional 
activities, and other information helpful in evaluating the impact of the 

F.  Other Income: Fees resulting from clinical practice, professional 
consultation, or other comparable activities required by the research and 
research-related activities of this career award may not be retained by the 
career award recipient.  Such fees must be assigned to the grantee institution 
for disposition by any of the following methods:

The funds may be expended by the grantee institution in accordance with the 
NIH policy on supplementation of career award salaries and to provide fringe 
benefits in proportion to such supplementation. Such salary supplementation 
and fringe benefit payments must be within the established policies of the 
grantee institution.

The funds may be used for health-related research purposes.

The funds may be paid to miscellaneous receipts of the U.S. Treasury. Checks 
should be made payable to the Department of Health and Human Services, NIH and 
forwarded to the Director, Division of Financial Management, NIH, Bethesda, 
Maryland 20892.  Checks must identify the relevant award account and reason 
for the payment.

Awardees may retain royalties and fees for activities such as scholarly 
writing, service on advisory groups, or honoraria from other institutions for 
lectures or seminars, provided these activities remain incidental and provided 
that the retention of such payments is consistent with the policies and 
practices of the grantee institution.

Usually, funds budgeted in an NIH-supported research or research training 
grant for the salaries or fringe benefits of individuals, but freed as a 
result of a career award, may not be rebudgeted.  The awarding component may 
give consideration to written requests for the use of released funds only 
under unusual circumstances.  Any proposed retention of funds released as a 
result of a career award must receive prior written approval of the NIH 
awarding component.

G.  Special Leave: Leave to another institution, including a foreign 
laboratory, may be permitted if directly related to the purpose of the award. 
 Only local, institutional approval is required if such leave does not exceed 
3 months.  For longer periods, prior written approval of the NIH funding 
component is required.  To obtain prior approval, the award recipient must 
submit a letter to the NIH describing the reason for the period of leave.  
This letter must be countersigned by his or her department head and the 
appropriate institutional official.  A copy of a letter or other evidence from 
the institution where the leave is to be taken must be submitted to assure 
that satisfactory arrangements have been made. Support from the career award 
will continue during such leave.  

Leave without award support may not exceed 12 months.  Such leave requires the 
prior written approval of the NIH funding component and will be granted only 
in unusual situations.  Support from other sources is permissible during the 
period of leave.  Such leave does not reduce the total number of months of 
program support for which an individual is eligible.  Parental leave will be 
granted consistent with the policies of the NIH and the grantee institution.

Under unusual and pressing personal circumstances, a recipient of the 
Development Award may submit a written request to the awarding component 
requesting a reduction in professional effort below 75 percent.  Such requests 
will be considered on a case-by-case basis during the award period.  It will 
not, however, be permissible to provide less than 50 percent effort under this 
award.  The nature of the circumstances requiring reduced effort might include 
medical conditions, disability, or pressing personal or family situations such 
as child or elder care.  Permission to reduce the level of effort will not be 
approved to accommodate other sources of funding, job opportunities, clinical 
practice, clinical training, or to adapt to any assigned duties associated 
with the employee’s role at the grantee institution.  In each situation, the 
grantee institution must submit documentation supporting the need for reduced 
effort and an assurance of a continuing commitment to the scientific 
development of the awardee.  Further, the awardee must submit assurance of his 
or her intention to return to full-time professional effort (at least 75 
percent) as soon as possible.  During the period of reduced effort, the salary 
and other costs supported by the award will be reduced accordingly.

H.  Termination or Change of Institution: When a grantee institution plans to 
terminate an award, the NIH funding component must be notified in writing at 
the earliest possible time so that appropriate instructions can be given for 
termination.  The Director of the NIH may discontinue an award upon 
determination that the purpose or terms of the award are not being fulfilled. 
 In the event an award is terminated, the Director of the NIH shall notify the 
grantee institution and career award recipient in writing of this 
determination, the reasons therefor, the effective date, and the right to 
appeal the decision.

Some institutes do not allow a change of institution but do allow a change of 
principal investigator if there are strong programmatic needs to justify 
continuation of the academic initiatives at the grantee institution.  If the 
funding component does allow a change of institution, awardees planning a 
change of institution must submit to the funding NIH component in advance of 
the change, a written request for transfer, countersigned by the appropriate 
institutional business official, describing the reasons for the change.  The 
awardee must establish in this request that the specific aims of the research 
program to be conducted at the new institution are within the scope of the 
original peer reviewed research program.  Staff within the NIH funding 
component will review this request and may require a review by an initial 
review group and/or the appropriate National Advisory Council or Board. Upon 
approval of this request, a new career award application must be submitted by 
the new institution, and the original grantee institution must relinquish the 
grant far enough in advance of the requested effective date to permit review. 
 The period of support requested in the new application must be no more than 
the time remaining within the existing award period.

A final progress report, invention statement, and Financial Status Report are 
required upon either termination of an award or relinquishment of an award in 
a change of institution situation.


It is the policy of the NIH that women and members of minority groups and 
their subpopulations must be included in all NIH supported biomedical and 
behavioral research projects involving human subjects, unless a clear and 
compelling rationale and justification is provided that inclusion is 
inappropriate with respect to the health of the subjects or the purpose of the 
research.  This policy results from the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 
(Section 492B of Public Law 103-43).

All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the 
"NIH Guidelines For Inclusion of Women and Minorities as Subjects in Clinical 
Research," which have been published in the Federal Register of March 28, 1994 
(FR 59 14508-14513) and in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Vol. 23, 
No. 11, March 18, 1994 available on the web at the following URL address:

It is the policy of NIH that children (i.e., individuals under the age of 21) 
must be included in all human subjects research, conducted or supported by the 
NIH, unless there are scientific and ethical reasons not to include them.  
This policy applies to all initial (Type 1) applications submitted for receipt 
dates after October 1, 1998.

All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the 
"NIH Policy and Guidelines on the Inclusion of Children as Participants in 
Research Involving Human Subjects" that was published in the NIH Guide for 
Grants and Contracts, March 6, 1998, and is available at the following URL 

Investigators also may obtain copies of these policies from the program staff 
listed under INQUIRIES.  Program staff may also provide additional relevant 
information concerning the policy.
