Sample Formats for Competing NIGMS U-RISE and MARC T34 Applications

All applications must include NIH Data Tables 2, 3, 4, 5C, and 8D (Part I or II, as applicable) and they should be uploaded to the Data Table section of the application form. Samples are found at the NIH Data Tables site. NIGMS has also developed informational videos that can aid in table preparation.

Applicants must include Baseline Program Data to facilitate NIGMS review of the ability of participating departments/interdepartmental programs to recruit training grant eligible individuals. NIH also uses the number of training grant eligible candidates to determine the appropriate budget and number of funded positions. NIGMS will use the data provided in a manner consistent with applicable law.

The required attachment with Baseline Program Data must be combined with the other required attachments (such as the Recruitment Plan to Enhance Diversity) and uploaded to “Other Project Information” of the PHS 398 Research Training Program Plan and must not be included in the Data Table section.
