Grants for Young Researchers
Young researchers are especially feeling the funding squeeze. The percentage of new investigators winning a combined $1.593 billion in funding during FY 2012 is slightly less than the 15.3% success rate for all new NIH grant applications, and half the percentage for established investigators, according to agency figures. More sobering for younger researchers, however, is how the age of first-time R01 grant winners has leveled off since 2000 to around 42 years old for Ph.D.s, 44 years old for combined M.D./Ph.D.s, and about 45 for M.D.s.
