Notice Number: NOT-OD-14-072
Release Date: March 20, 2014
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
NIH recently issued the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral MD/PhD or Other Dual-Doctoral Degree Fellowship (Parent F30) Funding Opportunity Announcement (PA-14-150). A key provision of this program is the eligibility criterion for all applicants other than DDS/PhD, DMD/PhD, and AuD/PhD degree candidates. This criterion stipulates that these applicants must have matriculated into a dual-degree program no more than 48 months prior to the due date of the initial (-01) application. Note that this eligibility limit applies ONLY to the initial (-01) application, and NOT to the resubmission (-A1) application.
NIH realizes that the timing of this change in eligibility may be problematic for some applicants. Therefore, NIH will accept F30 applications for the August 8, 2014 due date from applicants who would otherwise only be eligible to submit an initial (-01) application for the April 8, 2014 due date.
