Other Support Documentation

NIH requires applicants to disclose all resources made available to investigators in support of their research, regardless of monetary value. This is referred to as Other Support 

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Resources and/or financial support from all foreign and domestic entities, that are available to the researcher.
  • Consulting agreements, when the PD/PI or other senior/key personnel will be conducting research as part of the consulting activities.
  • In-kind contributions, e.g. office/laboratory space, equipment, supplies, or employees or students supported by an outside source.

Other support does not include training awards, prizes, or gifts. Gifts are resources provided where there is no expectation of anything (e.g. time, services, specific research activities, money, etc.) in return.
