Awardees must be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents.

In September 2005, NIH expects to make five to ten new Pioneer Awards of up to $500,000 in direct costs per year for five years. The first nine Pioneer Awards were made in September 2004 and support scientists working on a variety of challenging scientific problems.
