Occupational Safety and Health Training Project Grants (T03)

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), invites grant applications for Training Project Grants (TPGs) that are focused on occupational safety and health training. NIOSH is mandated to provide an adequate supply of qualified personnel to carry out the purposes of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the TPGs are one of the principal means for meeting this mandate. The majority of TPGs are in academic institutions that provide high quality training in the core occupational safety and health disciplines of industrial hygiene (IH), occupational health nursing (OHN), occupational medicine residency (OMR), occupational safety (OS), as well as closely related allied disciplines. NIOSH also funds non-academic programs to meet specific training needs of targeted populations including firefighters, commercial fishermen and occupational health and safety interns.

The University is invited to submit one nomination, and an internal review and selection process is necessary to select the best-qualified candidate to represent the University. Preliminary nominations to be considered in this process must be submitted to Dr. Michelle S. Broido, Associate Vice Chancellor for Biomedical Research, c/o Ms. Selena Crawford, sac32@pitt.edu.

The preliminary nomination packet must include: 1) a brief abstract of the nominee’s research, 2) the nominee’s current curriculum vitae, and 3) a letter of recommendation from the nominee’s department chair/dean/division director.
