NIH: Bridges to Baccalaureate Program (R25)PAR-13-333
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Education Grant (R25) applications that propose research education programs intended to enhance the pool of community college students from diverse backgrounds nationally underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral sciences who go on to research careers in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and will be available to participate in NIH-funded research. Key strategies are to increase transfer and increase retention to BA/BS graduation in biomedical and behavioral sciences. This initiative promotes partnerships/consortia between community colleges or other two-year post-secondary educational institutions granting the associate degree with colleges or universities that offer the baccalaureate degree.
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 (email@example.com) by August 27, 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-13-333.html
