Training Related Expenses

Current language:
NIGMS will provide funds to help defray research training expenses. The total amount of Training Related Expenses (TRE) that may be requested is limited by 1) whether a new application (T1) submission or a competing renewal application (T2) submission and by 2) type of Carnegie classified institution.

New (T1) MARC U-STAR applicants may request up to $16,800/trainee/year for research-intensive institutions (as considered to be RU/VH or RU/H in the Carnegie Basic Classification) and up to $25,200/trainee/year for non-research-intensive institutions (including the DRU category in the Carnegie Classification).

Competing renewal applicants (T2) may request up to a maximum of $8,400/trainee/year for TRE if the institution is research-intensive and request up to $12,600/ trainee/year if the institution is non-research-intensive. After the initial project period (typically 5 years), NIGMS expects MARC U-STAR Program activities to be established and maintained, in part, by institutional efforts, hence the lower TRE values.

Revised language:
NIGMS will provide funds to help defray research training expenses. The total amount of Training Related Expenses (TRE) that may be requested is limited by type of Carnegie classified institution.

MARC U-STAR applicants (both new (T1) and competing renewal applicants (T2))  may request up to a maximum of $8,400/trainee/year for TRE if the institution is research-intensive (as considered to be RU/VH or RU/H in the  Carnegie Basic Classification) ) and up to $12,600/ trainee/year if the institution is non-research-intensive (including the DRU category in the Carnegie Classification).

All other aspects of this FOA remain the same.
