Training Grants are funds awarded to an institution to train a cohort of researchers in a targeted research disciplinary area. Interdisciplinary faculty working in the field are identified as research mentors and predoctoral and/or postdoctoral trainees apply to be funded through the program and participate in its training activities. Most of these programs are federally sponsored and are restricted to US citizens and permanent residents, however, trainees ineligible for funding can join the training cohort and participate in the training activities.
