NRSA Fellowships (F30, F31 and F32)

Under its Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (Kirschstein-NRSA) program, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supports the training of biomedical, behavioral and clinical researchers through individual pre and postdoctoral fellowships.

Kirschstein-NRSA fellowship awards are made specifically to the individual graduate student (as Principal Investigator) rather than to the applicant institution. Although the graduate student is the Principal Investigator, an institution faculty member must serve as the fellowship sponsor.
