NIH Training Grants at Northwestern University

These grants provide support for training predoctoral students—PhD or combined doctoral degree (e.g., MD/PhD) and/or postdoctoral scholars, research postdoctoral fellows and/or clinical fellows— in exciting, important areas of biomedical, life sciences and behavioral research. Trainee appointments must meet the citizenship requirements set by the NIH, be mentored by a faculty member/preceptor participating in the training program, and be chosen through the individual training program’s selection process.
