Once a student receives word that s/he has been awarded a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award, s/he will need to submit a Fellowship Activation Notice to begin the disbursement of funds.
The student should work with the department fiscal manager or MSO and his/her sponsor to determine the date for the activation of the award. Note that fellowships may not be activated between October 1 and November 30.
The form can be dropped off in person at the Graduate Division or mailed to MC 0003. Interim Dean Steven Cassedy will then sign as the Institutional Business Official. The Graduate Division will submit the activation notice to the NIH and notify the fellow once the form has been submitted.
