Institutional Training Programs (T32)

The NINR T32 Award Program enables institutions with schools of nursing to make NRSA awards to individuals for pre doctoral and postdoctoral research training in acute and chronic illness across the life span, focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, health disparities, HIV/ AIDS, aging, caregiving, management of symptoms, self-management, and care at the end of life.  Standard NRSA stipend and budgetary levels  apply, including up to $800 annually for travel costs for each trainee.

NINR seeks to extend nursing science by integrating the biological and behavioral sciences, applying new technologies (including nanotechnology) to nursing research questions, exploring genetics and genomics applications in nursing research, improving the quality and effectiveness of interventions, and developing nursing research investigators. To provide pre- and post-doctoral research training to nurse scientists to broaden their scientific backgrounds and extend their potential for research. In so doing, the NINR is helping to address the critical shortage of nursing faculty, which both contributes to, and is affected by, the increasing gap between the supply and demand for nurses in the workforce. 

Innovative scientific programs that are interdisciplinary are especially encouraged.

Applications from institutions which implement strategies for identifying and recruiting students who have already completed a Bachelor's Degree in a field other than nursing; students who are from an under-represented group; or students who are currently BSN-Ph.D. students are particularly encouraged. In addition, applications that include provisions for the early identification and recruitment of undergraduate students who have the potential to become successful BSN-PH.D. Fast Track students are particularly encouraged.

Applicants are encouraged to review NINR's Mission and Strategic Plan for additional information on the Institute's research and training goals. NINR does require applicants requesting $500,000 or more in direct costs for any year to contact staff to obtain agreement that the IC will accept the application.  NINR requests that all applications use July 1 as the project start date.

NINR does not allow short-term training in the T32 program.

NINR will not accept T32 applications from DNP programs.
