This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Education Grant (R25) applications from institutions that propose to enhance the pool of master’s degree students from underrepresented backgrounds who are trained and available to participate in NIH-funded research. This initiative promotes partnerships/consortia between colleges or universities granting a terminal master’s degree with institutions that offer the doctorate degree. The program expects that the joint efforts of doctorate degree-granting and master’s degree-granting institutions will foster the development of a well-integrated institutional program that will provide students with the necessary academic preparation and skills to enable their transition and successful completion of the Ph.D. degree in biomedical and behavioral sciences.
Only one application per institution is allowed.
Application budgets are limited to $250,000 direct costs, per year. The scope of the proposed budget 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org / 384-3332), in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, by September 13, 2013.
