Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) requirements

All SEO scholars are trained in the responsible conduct of research.

For NSF scholarships the students have to complete a CITI training form and submit it to ORSP within the first month and then participate in RCR training throughout the year.

For NIH and privately-funded scholarships the RCR training occurs throughout the year and the forms are due to ORSP in the spring.

If you have questions about RCR training for your student, please contact the SEO Office.
