NIH K and Equivalent Career Development Awards

CHPS will waive charges for services for peer-reviewed K and other mentored career development awards for junior faculty where at least 50% salary support is awarded to the Principal Investigator. Free support for these studies will be for the duration of the award only. However, Principal Investigators may be charged fees for supplies. Free support may be limited for large studies utilizing many CHPS services if the magnitude of the request jeopardizes the availability of resources for other projects.

For junior faculty on institutional K slots and post-doctoral fellows on institutional T32 slots or equivalent mentored-training awards, CHPS will waive charges for nursing, biostatistics, and informatics core services. For additional core requests, provide mentor’s Other Support, including overlap with the trainee’s project.

Please indicate in your eCHPS and eTRACK submissions that the research is being supported by a career development award and that you are requesting that charges be waived.
