The NIH Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD) encourages undergraduate and graduate students from underrepresented groups to enter and complete doctoral programs in the fields. The program provides institutional support for existing or innovative student development activities, including research internships that will increase students' knowledge, skills, and information.

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 pm Friday, December 1, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should summarize 1) the research plan, goals and measurable objectives in attracting, retaining, and preparing underrepresented group students for careers in biomedical and/or behavioral science research; 2) the institutional scope of the proposed program, including the potential impact on MU's academic programs for retention and graduation toward careers in biomedical and behavioral research; 3) proposed student developmental activities; and 4) the evaluation plan.


The total project period may not exceed four years. Direct costs are limited to $350,000 annually for institutions with programs primarily for baccalaureate degree students, and $550,000 annually for programs that include a significant PhD student component.
