New NIH Guidelines for Research Students to have eRA Commons ID:

NIH issued a new Grants Policy Statement that graduate and undergraduate students who participate in NIH-funded projects for at least one person month or more must have an eRA Commons ID. As cautioned in the NIH Guide Notice (NOT-OD-13-097), beginning on October 18, 2013, a warning will be generated when a Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) is submitted that lists individuals in a graduate or undergraduate student role who have not established an eRA Commons ID. Beginning in October 2014, RPPRs lacking the eRA Commons ID for graduate and undergraduate students will receive an error message, and the RPPR will not be accepted by the NIH.

NIH issued a notice on July 23, 2013, encourages institutions to assist graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to achieve their career goals through the use of Individual Development Plans (IDPs) and report on this in all progress reports submitted on/after October 1, 2014, using the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). The new Grant Policy Statement embeds this “expectation” as a reportable element in the RPPR.
