This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Education Grant (R25) applications that propose research education programs intended to enhance the pool of community college students from diverse backgrounds nationally underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral sciences who go on to research careers in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and will be available to participate in NIH-funded research. Key strategies are to increase transfer and increase retention to BA/BS graduation in biomedical and behavioral sciences. This initiative promotes partnerships/consortia between community colleges or other two-year post-secondary educational institutions granting the associate degree with colleges or universities that offer the baccalaureate degree.
Only one application per institution is allowed.
Application budgets are limited to $300,000 direct costs per year. The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is 5 years.
If you are interested in participating in this opportunity, please contact Cheryl Ridgeway (email@example.com / 384-3332), in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, by September 13, 2013.
