What are Institutional Training Table Data Used For?
by NIH Staff

NIH institutional training grant applications request past and present faculty and trainee data, which are used by peer reviewers and NIH program staff in the evaluation of the application and making funding decisions. For active training grants, NIH requests trainee and faculty data to assess the progress of these ongoing training awards. These data provide insight into:

  • the environment of the proposed training
  • distribution of participating faculty by research interest
  • existing support for training, and availability of funds to support trainees’ research
  • recruitment of new trainees and progress of existing trainees, as assessed by outcomes such as:
    • degree completion
    • publications
    • career progress
    • subsequent involvement in research-related activities

Have other questions about training grant data tables? Visit our FAQs.

For more information on institutional training grants, generally, visit the “T Kiosk” page on researchtraining.nih.gov.

Getting Ready for the Next NIH Forms Update

Resubmitted from: NIH Extramural Nexus  April 30, 2017 at 5:43 pm

by NIH Staff

From time to time we need to update our application forms to maintain consistency with Grants.gov and Office of Management and Budget federal-wide requirements, and to incorporate changes in NIH policies and processes. NIH issued a Guide notice on April 27, announcing how we are gearing up for a transition from the current forms (“FORMS-D”) to the next iteration of forms for due dates on or after January 25, 2018. Highlights of the new FORMS-E will include:

  • Consolidation of human subjects, inclusion enrollment, and clinical trial information previously collected across multiple agency forms
  • Expansion and use of discrete form fields for clinical trial information to
    • provide the level of information needed for peer review;
    • lead applicants through clinical trial information collection requirements;
    • present key information to reviewers and agency staff in a consistent format; and
    • align with ClinicalTrials.gov (where possible) and position us for future data exchange with ClinicalTrials.gov
  • Incorporation of recent Grants.gov changes to R&R Budget and SBIR/STTRInformation forms

We will begin posting funding opportunities with the new FORMS-E packages in October. Read the NIH Guide Notice for more information: NOT-OD-17-062 – New NIH “FORMS-E” Grant Application Forms and Instructions Coming for Due Dates On or After January 25, 2018
