NIH R15 Eligibility

The NIH R15 activity code is known as the NIH Research Enhancement Award and supports small-scale research projects at educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation’s research scientists but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. The goals of the R15 are to: a) support meritorious research, b) expose students to research, and c) strengthen the research environment of the institution.

Two NIH programs are supported with R15 awards.
