PI Eligibility Policy

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health faculty have a range of appointment and employment arrangements as a result of the extent of our collaborations across Harvard and affiliated institutions. These circumstances require that we make decisions about PI status on grant submissions. The purpose of this policy is to articulate the Harvard Chan School’s determination of appointees’ eligibility to serve as PI on grants submitted through the Harvard Chan School.

Note: The PI Eligibility Policy is currently under review. In the interim, please contact pieligibility@hsph.harvard.edu with questions about eligibility and/or waivers. The Waiver Review Committee meets the third Thursday of each month. Waivers must be submitted two weeks before the monthly meetings to be considered.
