Limited Submission Announcement

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) solicits grant applications for the Population Research Infrastructure Program (PRIP) FY10 (R24) that propose to provide infrastructure support in order to foster and enhance the research capabilities of established population research centers that are highly productive and influential in the areas of research within the mission of the Demographic and Behavioral Sciences Branch (DBSB), Center for Population Research NICHD.

The primary purposes of the Program for Population Research Infrastructure are to provide resources to support and advance research that will improve understanding of the antecedents and consequences of population structure and change; to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration among investigators conducting population-related research and in allied fields; and to promote innovative approaches to population research questions. An additional goal is to facilitate interactions among scientists in locations throughout the United States that contribute to the integration and coordination of population research.

The Population Infrastructure Program (PRIP) allows three types of research infrastructure support: Research Support Cores; Developmental Infrastructure Cores; and Public Infrastructure Cores. This FOA allows for two types of applications: (1) Standard PRIP Applications, which request funding for Research Support Cores and/or Developmental Infrastructure Cores, and may also request funding for Public Infrastructure Cores; and (2) Public Infrastructure Only Applications, which request funding only for Public Infrastructure Core(s).

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 25, 2009.  Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) the type of core, 2) the goals and aims, 3) a description of the program and services to be provided, and 4) how the program and services support population research.


$3,750,000 total. Up to $750,000 per year for five years.
