NIH NRSA Fellowships

NIH NRSA fellowship applications are electronic and must be submitted to NIH via Grants.Gov 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 & F31 Predoctoral Fellowships for professional degree applicants (MD, PharmD, MD/PhD or PharmD/PhD)

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 Rachel Cook if you need a eRA Commons account set up.

  1. PHS Disclosure forms for the PI, Sponsor, and any Co-sponsors. This needs to be filled in and e-mailed to the COI office with a CC to your HS SPPO Analyst. Fellowships do not have UCSD proposal numbers so please leave this field blank.
  2. NIH Fellowship Assurance form signed by the PI, Sponsor(s), and Department Chair.
  3. NIH NRSA Budget Workbook  Please fill out the appropriate tab for the application type and use the most recent NIH stipend levels which can be found in the 4th tab of the workbook. For F30 and F31 applications, projected PhD and MD fees are listed in the last tab of the workbook.
