Limited Submission Announcement

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for Diversity Research Education Grants in Neuroscience (R25). The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support the development and/or implementation of programs to (1) increase the number of Ph.D.-level research scientists from diverse backgrounds including graduate, postdoctoral and/or junior-faculty career levels; and (2) advance the careers of the participants to the next step in their education. Programs may be local, regional or national in scope. Formats for these programs may also vary, e.g., short courses, a series of seminars, workshops, structured research experiences, or curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation. A plan must be provided for program evaluation and/or dissemination. Funding support for the R25 Diversity Research Education Programs should lead to increased recruitment, mentoring, education and retention of researchers from diverse backgrounds in the neuroscience scientific workforce.

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. Friday, December 3, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary including 1) program goals and objectives, 2) program activities, 3) evaluation and/or dissemination plans, and 4) the names of three MU personnel who would be qualified to serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.
