NIH NRSA Fellowships

NIH NRSA fellowship applications are electronic and must be submitted to NIH in ASSIST, by an authorized institutional signing official on behalf of the applicant. Your HS SPPO Analyst submits the following applications:

  • F32 Postdoctoral Fellowships for applicants with sponsor in Health Sciences.
  • F30 Predoctoral Fellowships for professional degree applicants (M.D., Pharm.D., M.D./Ph.D. or Pharm.D./Ph.D.)

To submit an application to the NIH, the applicant must be registered as a PI in the eRA Commons. Registration is done by HS SPPO for Health Sciences. Contact Nicole Foshey if you need a eRA Commons account set up or the PI role added to your current account.

Note: Starting January 21, 2020, fellowships will now be entered into Kuali Research (KR) PD. Prior to this date, they were entered into ePD. Work with your Fund Manager (your Sponsor's Fund Manager) to have this entered for you.
