Funding Opportunities

Supplemental and other potential sources of funding for graduate students, post-docs, and faculty.

NIH Loan Repayment Program

NIH Loan Repayment Program

The NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) are a set of programs established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers. The escalating costs of advanced education and training in medicine and clinical specialties are forcing some scientists to abandon their research careers for higher-paying private industry or private practice careers. The LRPs counteract that financial pressure by repaying up to $35,000 annually of a researcher's qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research. Since tomorrow's medical breakthroughs will be made by investigators starting in their research careers today, the LRPs represent an important investment by NIH in the future of health discovery and the wellbeing of the Nation.

NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRP) Application Cycle Opened on Saturday, September 1st

Have you thought about applying for an NIH LRP award? Do you know someone that should?

Awardees can receive up to $70,000 of qualified educational debt repayment with a two-year contract. Help us share this valuable information with your colleagues!

The LRP application cycle closes on November 15th. Go to www.lrp.nih.gov to learn more about eligibility requirements, application dates, and many benefits of the program!

Get Ready for the New Application Cycle!

  • Obtain your NIH Commons ID and make sure your password is up to date
  • Check out our revised LRP Application Guide to learn about application components
  • Reach out to an NIH LRP Program Officer to discuss your research
  • Contact your Institutional Business Official (IBO) at your institution
  • Contact an LRP Ambassador
  • Same deadline for application and colleague/institutional documentation - November 15, 2018

NSF INTERN Supplemental Funding

Non-Academic Research Internships for Graduate Students (INTERN) Supplemental Funding Opportunities

Fostering the growth of a globally competitive and diverse research workforce and advancing the scientific and innovation skills of the Nation is a strategic objective of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The… more » Nation's global competitiveness depends critically on the readiness of the Nation's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce and NSF seeks to continue to invest in programs that directly advance this workforce. As part of this effort, a supplemental funding opportunity is available in fiscal years FY 2019 and FY 2020 to provide support for non-academic research internships for graduate students to support career opportunities in any sector of the U.S. economy. NSF currently invests in a number of graduate student preparedness activities and has historically encouraged principal investigators (PIs) to include such activities in research proposals to NSF. This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) describes new funding opportunities at NSF to ensure graduate students are well prepared for the 21st-century STEM workforce.

NSF will consider supplemental funding requests that enable PIs to request up to six months of additional support for graduate students with the following goals:

  • To provide graduate students with the opportunity to augment their research assistantships with non-academic research internship activities and training opportunities that will complement their academic research training;
  • To allow graduate students to pursue new activities aimed at acquiring professional development experience that will enhance their preparation for multiple career pathways after graduation; and
  • To encourage the participation of graduate students from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented and underserved in the STEM enterprise: women, persons with disabilities, African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, veterans, and persons from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The PI of an active NSF award may request supplemental funding for one or more graduate students to gain knowledge, skills and experiences that will augment their preparation for a successful long-term career through an internship in a non-academic setting, including the following:

  • For-profit industry laboratories or industry research and development groups;
  • Start-up businesses, such as (but not limited to) those funded through the NSF's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program;
  • Government agencies (all levels) and National Laboratories;
  • Policy think-tanks; and
  • Non-profit organizations

Eligibility

To be eligible, graduate students must have completed at least one academic year in their graduate programs (master's or doctoral) and be making satisfactory progress towards the completion of their degrees.

This opportunity is open to PIs who are supporting graduate students through any active NSF award, except in the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), and the Office of Integrative Activities (OIA). Please see below for the participating divisions or programs within these organizations and any special conditions for the supplemental funding requests.

Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE)
Participating Divisions or Programs: Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC)
Special Conditions: Only doctoral candidates may apply. Internships will involve multi-disciplinary activities that pursue development of innovative cyberinfrastructure approaches specific to advancing science and engineering research.

Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS)
Participating Divisions or Programs: All Divisions
Special Conditions: Only doctoral candidates may apply through the Division of Astronomical Sciences (AST).

Office of Integrative Activities (OIA)
Participating Divisions or Programs: Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)
PIs of EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) awards are not eligible to apply.
Special Conditions: Supplement requests are encouraged from any NSF-funded PIs located in EPSCoR-eligible jurisdictions. Requests should be submitted to the original funding directorate for potential support through the EPSCoR program.
