Grant Description
- The objective of the Career Development Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research is to promote diversity among faculty-level neuroscience investigators who are competitively funded to conduct independent research. - Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. - The type of mechanism used for these awards is the Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01). - Eligible organizations include domestic for-profit or non-profit organizations, public or private institutions such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and medical, dental, or nursing schools or other institutions of higher education involved in neurological research - Eligible principal investigators include those individuals making the transition to an independent scientific career at the senior post-doctoral and junior faculty stages who come from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in neuroscience research. Such candidates include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. - Review criteria include: (1) qualifications of the candidate; (2) the soundness of the proposed career development plan; (3) training in the responsible conduct of research; (4) the nature and scientific/technical merit of the proposed research plan; (5) the qualifications and appropriateness of the mentor/co-mentor; (6) environment and institutional commitment to the candidate's career; and (7) the strength of the description of how this particular award will promote diversity within the institution or in science nationally. - There is no limit on the number of applications that may be submitted by an institution. - Applications must be prepared using Section IV of the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 9/2005). The PHS 398 is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html in an interactive format. - Telecommunications for the hearing impaired is available at: TTY 301-451-0088
