NIH has no rule that explicitly disallows salary escalation, but keep these three points in mind:
- You should be mindful of any salary policies internal to your institution.
- If you propose salary escalation, you’ll need to provide an explanation in section L. Budget Justification of the SF 424 R&R grant application.
- You cannot exceed the NIH Salary Cap or salary limitations stated in a given funding opportunity announcement. Further, you cannot assume the salary cap will increase in future years; stay within the current year’s cap when budgeting for subsequent years.
