National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute
National Institutes of Health

January 21, 2011

On this page:


  • The purpose of the T15 mechanism is to assist professional schools and other public and non-profit institutions to establish, expand, or improve programs of continuing professional education, especially for programs with new developments in the science or technology of the profession.
  • The intent of the award is to assist in establishing the course and not to sustain it over an extended period of time.
  • By the end of the original project period of a T15 grant (usually five years), a course should be well-established and self-sufficient through tuition, fees, and other revenue sources.


  • T15 applications must be submitted in response to a specific Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in which NHLBI participates.
  • Specific instructions for T15 applications submitted in response to an Institute solicitation can be found in the FOA.
  • FOAs can be found at


  • New (Type 1) T15 applications must follow the procedures for submission, as described in the specific FOA.
  • Investigators who are considering applying are advised to consult NHLBI staff beforehand.


  • NHLBI will not accept Type 2 (renewal) T15 grant applications. There will be no exceptions to this policy.


  • For applications submitted in response to a specific FOA, please refer to Section VII.1 of the FOA (Scientific/Research Contact(s)) for contact information.
