NIH Notice NOT-OD-19-029 requires a certification to be included in every NIH institutional training grant effective January 25, 2019.  The certification must provide that the University has proper policies, procedures and oversight to prevent discriminatory practices. The Office of Research has prepared a standard letter which should be included in all T applications effective immediately.  The letter is housed on the CTSI Training grant toolkit page at: specifically at: Prevention of Discriminatory Harassment on NIH Training Grants


If you have any questions on the letter, please don’t hesitate to contact me. If you have any questions about the development of an institutional training grant, please consult the resources and contacts at:
