Prospective fellows must provide evidence of either of the following:

Training Grant Support
Many of our fellows receive support for the second and third years of training through a training grant from the National Institutes of Health. If eligible, fellows must be willing to accept the service payback obligation that is incurred with this support. Policies regarding the Ruth L. Kirschstein-NRSA payback obligation are explained in the NIH Grants Policy Statement. More details can be found on the NIH Frequently Asked Questions page.
