The National Institutes of Health is accepting applications for the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grants (T35) to develop or enhance research training opportunities for individuals interested in careers in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research. The training program must be in either the basic, clinical, or behavioral research aspects of the health-related sciences, and should be of sufficient depth to enable selected trainees, upon completion of the program, to have a thorough exposure to the principles underlying the conduct of research.

The T35 program provides short-term support for training experiences under the supervision of experienced researchers and exposes students to individuals with active research careers as well as providing them with knowledge about further research training and biomedical or behavioral research career opportunities.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, April 11, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed project, including 1) an overview of the training program, and 2) strategies to recruit and retain students, especially minority students.


The FY 2005 annual stipend level for a predoctoral trainee is $20,772, therefore the monthly stipend is $1,731 per month. The FY 2005 range of annual postdoctoral stipend levels is $35,568 ($2,964 per month) to $51,036 ($4,253 per month). The FY 2005 amounts for TRE are $2,200 annually ($183 per month) for each predoctoral trainee and $3,850 annually ($322 per month) for each postdoctoral trainee.
