Additional Application Data to Replace Table 6

NIGMS no longer requires Training Table 6A in its Institutional Predoctoral T32 training grant applications. In order to avoid the inclusion of Table 6 in a training data table set generated via xTRACT, applicants should omit the "Start year of the most recently completed academic year" when prompted in the Applicants/Entrants section. The resulting PDF will then exclude Table 6A.

Although Table 6A is not required, applicants must provide Application and Admissions Data to allow for the evaluation of the ability of participating departments/interdepartmental programs to recruit training grant eligible individuals.

Accordingly, provide the numbers and characteristics of training grant eligible (I) applicants, (II) admitted individuals, and (III) matriculants for each of the past 5 academic years as well as the average over those years. Applicants are encouraged to use the Suggested Format Table A provided on the NIGMS website and to report on the categories listed in NIH's Interest in Diversity. Demographic data should be from voluntary self-reporting.

The suggested Format Table A should be combined with the other required attachments (such as the Recruitment Plan to Enhance Diversity, Trainee Retention Plan, etc.) and uploaded to “Other Project Information” of the PHS 398 Research Training Program Plan Forms H​ and must not be included in the Data Table section.

NIGMS recommends using the Suggested Formats Table A for applications with:
