The term other support is specific to NIH and entails the submission of information regarding research funding that is either active or pending review or award. The information needs to be submitted for all key personnel and needs to include all financial resources, whether Federal, non-Federal, commercial or organizational, available in direct support of an individual's research endeavors, including, but not limited to, research grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, or organizational awards. Other support does not include training awards, prizes, or gifts.
This information needs to follow a specific format and has to be submitted once NIH has reviewed a proposal and initiates the JIT (Just in Time Process). For more information see the question regarding NIH other support submission under this How To section.
