Childcare Costs for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Fellows and Institutional Research Training Awards

As part of ongoing efforts to support family-friendly work environments for the NIH-supported workforce, NIH is increasing the childcare support to $3000 for applicable NRSA individual fellowships and institutional training awards effective beginning with FY2024 awards. Applicable FY2024 training and fellowship awards that were issued prior to the date of this notice will be revised to retroactively reflect the increase in support for all eligible slots (training) and individuals (fellowships).
