Institutional Training Programs

Funding Opportunities for Institutional Training Grants (T32)

NIMH encourages innovative Institutional Training Grant (T32) applications to support research training programs within the research areas and research priorities supported by the Institute. Research training programs are designed to allow the Training Program Director / Principal Investigator (Training PD/PI) to select the trainees (predoctoral and/or postdoctoral fellows) and develop a curriculum of study and research experiences necessary to provide high quality research training. The grant offsets the cost of stipends, tuition and fees, and training related expenses including health insurance for the appointed trainees in accordance with the approved NIH support levels.

NIMH encourages its T32-supported trainees to submit individual funding applications to provide support for their mentored research training after their appointment on the T32 has ended.

Training PDs/PIs are strongly encouraged to contact Institute program staff well in advance of the receipt deadline to discuss their institution’s application plans.
