    Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Stipends Increased

    Date: May 18, 2011

    New stipend levels for fiscal year (FY) 2011 Kirschstein-NRSA awards for undergraduate, predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees and fellows have been increased across the board by 2% over the FY 2010 levels.  These changes affect all Kirschstein-NRSA awards made on or after October 1, 2010, and will be administratively applied to all applications currently in the review process.

    Note that NRSA support is limited to 5 years for predoctoral trainees and 3 years for postdoctoral fellows.  The maximum amount that NIH will award to support the compensation package for a graduate student research assistant remains at the zero level postdoctoral stipend.
