Purpose

NIAID allows up to two opportunities to submit a T32 (Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant (Parent T32) (PA-18-403)) or T35 (Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grant (Parent T35) (PA-18-404)) application for funding consideration in the same fiscal year.  Beginning with the Sept 25, 2018 application due date and beyond, NIAID will NOT accept for review any competitive renewal (T2) T32 or T35 application that is submitted more than 18 months before the project end date of the current non-competing award.  Any such early applications will be withdrawn; PD(s)/PI(s) will have the option of submitting the renewal application later.

For example, if a 5-year T32 award (T5) ends June 2020, then the competing T2 application should not be submitted more than 18 months prior to this end date, that is any time before January 2019.  If the initial T2 application (A0) is not funded, then there is another opportunity to submit an amended application (A1) for potential funding in the same fiscal year* (2020) (without a gap in funding from the T5 end date):
