NIH Summer Research Experience Programs (R25)
Provides high quality summer research experiences for high school and college students, and for science teachers via institutional research education grants. These grant programs must focus on substance use/abuse/addiction and are expected to: help attract young students to careers in science; provide opportunities for college students to gain valuable research experience to help prepare them for graduate school; and enhance the skills of science teachers and enable them to more effectively communicate the nature of the scientific process to their students. The grant programs would also contribute to enhancing overall science literacy. Participants are selected and appointed to the program by the grantee institution. Funding Announcement.
