Providing Research Education Experiences to Enhance Diversity in the Next Generation of Substance Abuse and Addiction Scientists (R25 – Clinical Trials Not Allowed)
This NIDA R25 funding opportunity seeks to facilitate the research education of undergraduate students, predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and early-stage investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the NIDA research portfolio. Individuals who are knowledgeable about substance abuse and addiction research and interested in focusing on this research area later in their careers are encouraged to apply.
Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences (BP-ENDURE) (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The goal of ENDURE is to provide individuals who are typically underrepresented in neuroscience research with training at the undergraduate level so they are prepared to enter and successfully complete neuroscience Ph.D. programs. ENDURE will provide this undergraduate training through partnerships between research-intensive institutions and institutions with a substantial enrollment of neuroscience majors from diverse groups. This includes individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. ENDURE undergraduate training programs will support a range of activities to increase student interest and involvement in the neurosciences, including research experiences, core and advanced neuroscience courses, seminars, and journal clubs.
NIH Blueprint Program for Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The overarching goal of this NIH Blueprint R25 program is to encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds (including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce) to pursue further studies or careers in neuroscience research. This FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on research experiences, mentoring activities, and courses for skills development.
Summer Research Education Experience Program (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The Summer Research Education Experience Program creates opportunities for high school and undergraduate students to have hands-on exposure to research to reinforce their intent to graduate with a science degree or continue to participate in research. This program also includes activities that support scientific development, such as writing and presentation skills. Students and teachers from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
BUILD awards consist of 10 linked grants issued to undergraduate institutions to implement and study innovative approaches to engaging and retaining students from diverse backgrounds in biomedical research. This initiative aims to help students on the pathway to become future contributors to the NIH-funded research enterprise. Through implementing a variety of innovative approaches to skill building, mentorship, and institutional change, the BUILD-funded institutions address various challenges faced by students, faculty, and institutions.
