NIH: Coordination Center for Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) (R01)

Program Summary

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications from institutions/organizations to serve as the Coordination Center (CC) for the Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE). This FOA runs parallel with a separate FOA that solicits applications for eight Summer Institutes (See RFA-HL-14-021). The Summer Institutes are designed to enable junior faculty and postdoctoral scientists transitioning into academic faculty positions, from underrepresented backgrounds, to further develop their research skills and knowledge to enhance their career development as faculty members and scientists. 

The purpose of the CC is to support and complement the activities of the Summer Institutes as they enhance the development of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs.


Only one application per institution is allowed.  Institutions may apply for both the Summer Institute and CC components of this program. However, the PD/PI for the CC must not be the same PD/PI for the Summer Institute application.
