Outside Awards with Cash Prize: Permissible for NIH Employees to Accept

NIH employees make outstanding contributions to the biomedical sciences that are frequently recognized by outside organizations in the form of awards. Employees may accept these awards subject to the regulations (5 CFR 2635.204(d) and 5 CFR 5501.111). For general information on awards, see Awards from Outside Organizations. (Conflicts analysis is required for each employee recepient prior to acceptance.)

The Advisory Committee to the Director, NIH, (ACD) is charged with the responsibility to pre-screen all awards offering a cash gift which are given by non-Federal organizations.  The ACD considers whether the award is made as part of an established program of recognition under which:

  1. awards have been made on a regular basis or which is funded, wholly or in part, to ensure its continuation on a regular basis, and
  2. the selection of the award recipient is made pursuant to written standards.

The ACD makes recommendations to the NIH DEC, who has final approval authority for whether individual awards meet these criteria.

Awards that only bestow the following need not be pre-screened by the ACD.  Each DEC will review and provide approval, if appropriate.

  • an honor (no cash component);
  • a plaque or trophy of little intrinsic value;
  • travel expenses to an event;  or
  • waiver of registration fee for the award ceremony.

The following awards offering cash gifts have been pre-screened by the ACD and determined by the NIH DEC to satisfy the regulatory requirements. With prior approval from their DEC, NIH employees may accept the cash gifts associated with these awards where acceptance would be consistent with all applicable rules.   See Awards from Outside Organizations for additional information.  Awards included on the list will be updated biannually in June and December, following the meetings of the ACD.  Awards can be removed if it is determined that they no longer meet the criteria for acceptance. For additional information, contact your IC's  Deputy Ethics Counselor or  Ethics Coordinator.

Awards added following the December 2014 ACD meeting. View the printable Awards List (pdf, 13 pages)
