The National Cancer Institute (NCI) announces plans for the orderly

phase-out and termination of its Research Career Development Awards

(RCDA) Program (K04).  The RCDA Program, which was begun more than 20

years ago, no longer addresses the most critical research manpower

objectives of the NCI.  The Program is currently under review in

order to determine whether it should be restructured or replaced with

a new program that would be more relevant to contemporary research

career development needs.

The final NCI application receipt dates for this program are as

follows:  February 1, 1995 for new applications and March 1,1995 for

revised applications.  Awards from this cycle will be for a full

five-year project period and will represent the final awards made for

the NCI Research Career Development Awards (RCDA) Program (K04).

Applications will not be accepted by the NCI for any future receipt


Any new awards made in Fiscal 1995 or 1996, based on previously

reviewed applications, will be for a full five-year project period.

All non-competing commitments for future year support made to current

grantees will continue to be honored as indicated on the current

Notice of Award.
