The National Institutes of Health has announced the availability of childcare costs for Individual Fellowship recipients (F-type awards). For awards made on or after April 8, 2021, full-time NIH NRSA-supported fellows are eligible to receive $2,500 per budget period to defray costs of childcare provided by a licensed childcare provider. Cost are permitted for dependent children living in the eligible fellow’s home who are either under the age of 13, or disabled and under the age of 18. These costs may be requested in new, continuation or supplement applications.
Childcare costs are not available for Trainees on Institutional Training (T-type) awards at this time, but will be in the future.
