Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Office of Training Grants and Fellowships


Baylor College of Medicine has a long history of securing federal research funds from the federal, state and local resources. In fact, in 2020 Baylor received $507 million in total funding from sponsored project awards. These sponsored awards include institutional training or other training related grants, fellowships, and/or career development grants which help to provide direct support for trainee stipends, tuition and other training related expenses for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career investigators in coordinated training programs.

To further aid in Baylor's mission to improve health through science, scholarship and innovation, the Graduate School of Biomedical Science’s Office of Training Grants and Fellowships (OTGF) was established to help further maintain a strong internal resource for training related grant applications.

The OTGF can assist you with the following:

  • Training related data management and outcomes tracking
  • GSBS Instruction to Responsible Conduct of Research
  • GSBS Budget Templates
  • Providing GSBS student time-to-degree information
  • Sharing of best practices and communications for training-related grants
  • Providing funding opportunities for training faculty, GSBS postdocs and GSBS students
  • Institutional Letter of Support for Harassment and Discrimination Protections in NIH Training Applications (NOT-OD-19-056)

If you are a faculty member desiring to apply for a new training grant, competing renewal and/or have a training grant RPPR due we encourage you to contact our office in advance (preferably 60‐90 days prior to the deadline) to allow sufficient time to prepare data tables.


Training Grant PD/PI or Other Key Personnel


In circumstances in which a Baylor faculty member is subject to administrative or disciplinary action that significantly impacts their ability to fulfill their obligations as a program director or principal investigator or other key personnel on a federally funding training grant [e.g. National Institutes of Health, institutional training grants: T15, T32, T34, T35, T36, T37, T90/R90, TL1, TL4], the faculty member and/or their supervisor must immediately notify the dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, who will assess the impact of the action on the training environment, and coordinate with the College's NIH Signing Official, to develop a formal request for NIH prior approval
