No. The Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy does not apply to awards for Training Programs (e.g., Ts, D43) and Fellowship Programs (Fs); however, Research Career Programs (Ks) are subject to the DMS Policy. While Training and Fellowship Programs are not subject to the DMS Policy, NIH encourages trainees and fellows to consider integrating data management and sharing practices into their activities if appropriate. Please see a complete list of NIH activity codes subject to the DMS Policy.
For other activity codes subject to the DMS Policy that also include a training or infrastructure development component, applicants are only expected to address in Plans the sharing of scientific data generated in the course of their research. Applicants are not expected to address in their Plans the sharing of scientific data generated during training or infrastructure development.
