Training Grants

Please contact the FSH Society with training opportunities you would like to post.


U.S. NIH Extramural Training and Career Development Grants for FSHD are available from the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

Career development awards provide salary and laboratory support for individuals who have completed their postdoctoral training, or who need “protected time” at critical periods of their research careers. These awards usually have a (K) activity code.

Training awards are designed to support the research training of scientists for careers in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and to help professional schools to establish, expand, or improve programs of continuing professional education. Training awards can be individual fellowships (F) or institutional training grants (T).
