Program description:

This FOA issued by the National Institutes of Health, solicits applications for the NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards (DP5) from institutions/organizations that propose to appoint and support exceptional, early career scientists directly following the completion of their Ph.D. (or equivalent) or M.D. (or equivalent) training into an independent academic research position, thereby omitting the traditional post-doctoral training period from their career path.
At the time of appointment to the grantee Institution, the Early Independence PI must have received a PhD, MD, DO, DC, DDS, DVM, OD, DPM, ScD, EngD, Dr PH, DNSc, ND (Doctor of Naturopathy), PharmD, DSW, PsyD, or equivalent doctoral degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution (it is the responsibility of the sponsoring institution to determine if a foreign doctoral degree is equivalent).  Certification by an authorized official of the degree-granting institution that all degree requirements have been met is also acceptable.
Program Guidelines:  

The complete solicitation can be found at for review.
