Shannon Award Sheila Vrana 17 Sep 1999 10:43 EST
NIH provides Shannon awards (R55) to some applicants who are close, but
not within the Institute's payline.  These pay $50,000 total costs per
year for up to 2 years, and include 25% ($10,000) facilities and
administration costs.  A faculty member has asked that we waive F&A
costs for her R55 so that additional direct costs will be available for
the project.  She indicates NIH officials say this is often done by
institutions.  Has your institution waived R55 F&A costs to increase
direct costs available to a principal investigator?
