T32 Training Grants from the NIH are among the most popular and frequently funded training grants that prepare predoctoral and postdoctoral individuals for careers in research that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the nation. These grants pay stipend, travel, research costs and other expenses and is supported by most institutes at the NIH.

Additionally, training program grants have been designed to help ensure that a highly skilled workforce is available to undertake leadership roles and help advance the nation’s biomedical and clinical research agenda. T32 grants support trainees for up to 1 year but possibly more. Most researchers are not aware of the opportunities available with these important training grants and the requirements for applying.
