Our policy team continues to receive questions about how institutions can request childcare costs for full-time predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees appointed on NRSA institutional research training awards and full-time NIH-NRSA supported fellowship positions. These and many other questions related to childcare costs can be found in our Childcare Costs FAQs. Even if you have requested childcare costs in past Fellowship applications, the process is slightly different with the new FORMS-G applications and the updated FAQ in this post is worth another look.
Guests from NIH’s biomedical research workforce office will share their insights on available programs, who is eligible, some of the fine print, and other tips to consider when seeking support.
