The purpose of the National Research Service Award (NRSA) F33 program is to provide senior fellowship support to established scientists who wish to make major changes in the direction of their research careers or who wish to broaden their scientific background by acquiring new research capabilities as independent research investigators in scientific health-related fields relevant to the missions of the NCI. This award is designed for sabbatical periods.
NCI fellowships that are discussed will be assigned a priority score and a percentile indicating the application’s relative standing among applications reviewed in the same study section. Applications that are not discussed will not be assigned a priority score or a percentile. All applications will receive the reviewers comments or “summary statement” approximately one month after the study section meets.
For more complete information, reference the program announcement and/or contact the program staff.
