Training Activities @ NIH

The Training Activities module is used at NIH to support business operations for processing training appointments, terminations, and payback obligations of Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (Kirschstein-NRSA) trainees and terminations and payback obligations of Kirschstein-NRSA individual fellows.

NIH awards these training grants every year to help individuals train for research careers in the behavioral, biomedical and clinical sciences. While the current system is designed to primarily process Kirschstein-NRSA data, plans are underway to accommodate other NIH research training programs such as institutional career programs and continuing education grants.

One specialized feature of the TA system is the Payback component.  Under current legislation, post doctoral recipients of Kirschstein-NRSA support must pay back the first 12 months of support either by time-in-service or through monetary remuneration.  So the TA system has special screens used by the centralized Payback Center to track and monitor all individuals with a payback obligation.
