The NCI Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research service F30 Award supports promising doctoral candidates who will perform dissertation research and training for an MD/PhD degree in a scientific health-related field relevant to the mission of the NCI during the tenure of the award. Applicants for the F30 must be within 48 months of matriculation into an accredited MD/PhD program at the time of application.

NCI requires a clear cancer focus in graduate research training and gives funding priority to applications whose primary sponsor has cancer-related R01 or R01-like, peer-reviewed research grants at the time of application and the time of the award. For the NCI F30 Award, R01-like research funding includes peer-reviewed research grants from other federal sources and private foundations with a duration of at least 3 years with a minimum of $150,000 direct costs per year. The primary sponsor is expected to maintain such grant support during the project period. Grants under a no-cost extension do not qualify.

Reminder to NCI Fellowship grantees: Changes in the Project
Individual fellowship awards are made for training at a specific institution under the guidance of a particular sponsor. Prior approval by NCI is required for a transfer of the award to another institution, a change in sponsor, or a significant project change. If the primary sponsor plans to be absent for a continuous period of more than 3 months, an interim sponsor must be named by the institution and approved in writing by NCI.
