A notarized statement will be required as part of the pre-award process. Permanent Resident of U.S. Pending: Check this box if the candidate has applied for Permanent Residence and expects to have obtained such status prior to the time of award. A notarized statement will be required as part of the pre- award process. Non-U.S. citizen with temporary U.S. visa: This box is applicable only to specific programs that do not require U.S. citizenship or permanent residency; e.g. K99/R00. The NIH awarding component may request verifying information as part of the pre-award process. 4

5 NIH Research Career Development (K) Awards Eligible Individuals (Program Director/Principal Investigator) Any candidate with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) is invited to work with his/her mentor and organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. Multiple Principal Investigators are not allowed. By the time of award, the individual must be a citizen or a non-citizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., possess a currently valid Permanent Resident Card USCIS Form I-551, or other legal verification of such status. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible. Former principal investigators on NIH research project (R01), program project (P01), center grants, FIRST Awards (R29), sub-projects of program project (P01) or center grants, other career development awards (K–awards), or the equivalent are not eligible. Former principal investigators of an NIH Small Grant (R03), Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21), Dissertation Awards (R36), or SBIR/STTR (R41, R42, R43, R44) remain eligible. Candidates for this award must have a research or health-professional doctoral degree. Although all of the participating NIH ICs use this mechanism to support career development experiences that lead to research independence, some ICs use the K01 award for individuals who propose to train in a new field or for individuals who have had a hiatus in their research career because of illness or pressing family circumstances. Other ICs utilize the K01 award to increase research workforce diversity by providing enhanced research career development opportunities. 5
