Opportunities by Education Level   |   NIAAA Contacts for Training & Career Awards   

Key to understanding the complex world of NIH Funding is mastering the different types of funding mechanisms.  This page provides information on the different training and career development grants broken out by their funding mechanism (K, F or T).

The information below is focused on NIH training programs in which the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) participates.  Links are provided below for each of the programs as well as contact information for NIAAA.

For information on all training programs at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) please visit the  NIH Research Training and Career Development Programs page .  For information on understanding the NIH and finding the right fit for your research, please refer to the NIH’s Office of Extramural Research (OER) Grants Basics page.

Not all NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) participate in all programs so we encourage you to read through the program descriptions and funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) before contacting program staff.
