NIH Planning Grants Supporting Underrepresented Groups in Biomedical Research Now Available
Date: March 26, 2013
The NIH is currently offering two planning grants to support underrepresented groups in biomedical research. The NIH Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) Initiative planning grant supports institutions engaging in novel approaches for enhancing undergraduate education, training, and mentorship, and would support infrastructure support and faculty development to facilitate those approaches. The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) planning grant will support applicants who propose a plan to develop the partnerships and infrastructure needed to be competitive for the NRMN initiative, which supports mentorship and networking for groups at the undergraduate to junior faculty level. Letters of Intent for both planning grants are due April 10.
