Aiding with scientific success is vital for continued representation of individuals from underrepresented minority (URM) communities within the ASBMR. This new initiative, sponsored by the ASBMR DEI Committee, will provide grant consulting services to mid- and late-career ASBMR members from URM backgrounds, to help them secure the funding necessary to continue their research.
Each of the three awards will provide up to $5,000 in grant consulting services. URM scientists and/or clinicians who are close to receiving NIH R01 funding (or equivalent levels of funding from other national and international agencies) are the primary intended audience. Applicants should note that acceptance into the program does not guarantee a successful outcome in terms of a funded award.
A portion of the awarded funds will be paid as compensation directly to the consultant, who will be dedicating significant time to the application and proposal review. Any remaining funds will be available for professional editorial support and/or services. To receive these funds, additional editorial support must be requested by the consultant. Please note that it is not the responsibility of the consultant to provide editorial support and/or services.
