Purpose: This AHRQ Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), supported by funds provided to AHRQ under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act or ARRA), Public Law 111-5, invites applications from institutions that have received new five-year NRSA institutional training awards from AHRQ in FY 2008 to compete for the AHRQ institutional NRSA Postdoctoral Comparative Effectiveness Development Training Award (T32). The purpose of this program is to support the postdoctoral training of health services and clinical researchers who have made a commitment to focus their research on the generation, translation, and dissemination of new scientific evidence and analytical tools in comparative effectiveness. The award will provide two years of supervised study and research for two cohorts of clinical and research doctorates, with one cohort initiating training in the first year of the grant and the second initiating training in the second year of the grant.
Mechanism of Support: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the NRSA Institutional award (T32) mechanism.
Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards: It is anticipated that AHRQ will make approximately 5-7 awards for a total of $5 million. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Because the nature and scope of the proposed training program will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size of each award may also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, and costs of the applications received.
