The 2015 approval covered an application form for a postdoctoral and professional development program initially developed in partnership with the International AIDS Society (IAS) focused singularly on HIV and drug use. That program attracted exceptionally qualified applicants, and the individuals who received the fellowships continue to make significant contributions to field of addiction research. The partnership with IAS did not permit NIH/NIDA to require that mentors be NIH/NIDA-supported grantees, however, and that requirement became increasingly important to NIH/NIDA to ensure that every application would address U.S. and, more specifically, NIH/NIDA research priorities.

This is a renewal information collection request, with changes due to programmatic adjustments to the fellowship training program, and due to including assurance language for the ethical conduct of research within the application form itself in order to discontinue the Applicant Consent form initially used for this purpose. The separate form is eliminated in this revised submission and has been replaced with applicant and mentor certification and assurance language incorporated directly in the application itself. This reduces the amount of paperwork required while ensuring that the applicants and mentors accept their responsibilities to follow the regulations.
