NIH: Bridges to the Doctorate (R25)PAR-13-341
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.
USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 20, 2015. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
NIH indicates that a letter of intent is NOT APPLICABLE and a full proposal is due by September 25, 2015. For more information: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-13-341.html
