Stipends and Benefits


Each stipend will be determined by the applicant’s degree and years of relevant postdoctoral experience. Stipend levels increase with the number of years of postdoctoral experience. Annual increases may be given. Specialty allowances may also be given for specialized training in epidemiology and/or biostatistics. Stipends are subject to change depending on Federal guidelines and funding availability.

Health Insurance and Leave

Fellows will receive individual or family health insurance and paid federal holidays, annual leave, sick leave, and maternity/paternity leave.


NCI may cover the cost of relocation expenses up to a maximum of $3,000 (i.e., travel, shipment of household goods, and temporary storage, if necessary) for the fellow for one move to the area where M.P.H. training will be pursued, or to the Rockville, Maryland area. Reimbursement will be in accordance with prevailing government regulations. No return travel is authorized.

Training and Travel

Funds are provided for fellows' travel to meetings and training each year, excluding the M.P.H. year, based on funding availability.
