NIH Training Grants

The School of Medicine (SOM) has published helpful guidelines and best practices concerning NIH National Research Service Award (NRSA) Training Grants.

School of Public Health (SPH) trainees:

The SOM guidelines above also apply to School of Public Health (SPH) trainees. However, for SPH NRSA predoctoral research trainees, it is possible to be appointed using either job class code 0859 (Stipend Grad Trainee C), or 0864 (Stipend Grad Trainee A). The SOM guidelines above state that all SOM NRSA predoctoral trainees must be appointed using only job class code 0859. Check the UW Graduate School service expectancy guidelines below and discuss with the training grant PD/PI and Department Administrator before determining the appropriate job code for a trainee.
