National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

NINDS support for the Independent Scientist Award (K02) is intended for the career 
development of clinically trained neuroscientists with an M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or other 
health professional degree whose primary appointment is in a clinical department.  
For more information, see the NINDS training and career development website:

Policy Change and Continuation: Prior to this Notice, applicants were required to 
apply within 6 years of completing clinical training, which is defined as residency 
training and, if applicable, an additional year of clinical fellowship.  Beginning 
with the October 1, 2000 receipt date, the 6 years restriction will no longer be 
applied.  However, the intent of the award will continue to be the support of health 
professionals who are committed to a career in neuroscience research and who have 
recently achieved independent scientist status.  Further, the salary for the fourth 
and fifth year is awarded only if the applicant competes successfully for a regular 
research grant (R01).
