Next Generation Researchers Initiative

Modified: June 21, 2017

NIH Next Generation Researchers Initiative: Replacing the Grant Support Index (GSI) limits, NIH has launched a new initiative to fund proposals from early- and mid-career investigators that score well but fall short of the funding cutoff.  The program sets aside $210 million this year and will ramp up over 5 years, reaching $1.1 billion per year.  The new initiative goes into effect immediately for investigators who are currently awaiting a funding decision.
