NIMH has announced some modifications to eligibility for applicants to the parent K01, K08, and K23 mechanisms. The parent announcements only disqualify those who have received (as PI) R01, P01 or center grant project, or other K award funding. Starting with the February 12, 2013 submission deadline, NIMH only accept applications from
individuals with no more than 6 years of postdoctoral experience at the time of application (either the initial or resubmission application). The NIMH will generally not consider applications requesting more than 4 years of K01, K08, or K23 support. See http://www.nimh.nih.gov/research-funding/training/career-development-programs-k-series.shtml for further details.
For the same submission deadline, NIMH will increase its K99-phase salary cap from $50,000 to $75,000.
