Purpose

NIH recognizes that the high cost of childcare impacts graduate students and post-doctoral researchers funded through NIH fellowships, and their ability to successfully complete their training and fully participate in the extramural research workforce. Therefore, this Notice announces that NCI, NHGRI, NIA, NIDCR, NIDDK, and NINDS (on behalf of the NIH Blueprint DSPAN) will defray childcare costs to recipients of Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) programs during the F99 phase of the award.

Eligibility

Applicants must be planning an F99/K00 application or have an active NIH Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) through NCI, NHGRI, NIA, NIDCR, NIDDK, and NINDS (on behalf of the NIH Blueprint DSPAN) that is still in the F99 phase.
