An official with the National Institute of Mental Health, part of the National Institutes of Health, will discuss the application process for graduate and postdoctoral National Research Service Awards on March 30. Graduate students, postdocs, faculty and research staff are invited to attend the virtual session. 

NRSA fellowships support trainees in conducting basic and applied research that aligns with the National Institutes of Health’s mission “to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability.” 

Anita Bechtholt, associate director for research training and career development in NIMH’s Division of Translational Research, will discuss the program in a Zoom presentation from noon to 1:30 p.m. She also will answer questions about the opportunity. Registration is required. 

Since they are key to the success of these applications, potential faculty sponsors are encouraged to participate in the session, too, to learn more about the training section of the application process.  

The session is sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Graduate Studies. 

For more information, contact Rick Bevins, interim associate vice chancellor for research.
