Should a graduate student’s salary and tuition that are paid for by a foreign entity be listed in Other Support?
If the graduate student is putting forth effort that contributes to the PI’s research, and they are not Key Personnel, this is a type of Other Support. This should be listed within the PI’s Other Support.
Note: In this scenario, the grad student is not Senior/Key Personnel on the NIH grant. Rather, this reflects support the student receives to carry out experiments in Dr. Smith’s lab that directly benefit Dr. Smith’s research endeavors; it is considered a form of Other Support for Dr. Smith.
If the graduate student is Key Personnel, they should include their own Other Support documentation and list this source of salary. In this case, they would not be included within Dr. Smith’s Other Support.
