DoD Prostate Cancer Collaborative Undergraduate Historically Black Colleges and Universities Student Summer Training Program Award: The PCRP Collaborative Undergraduate Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU1) Student Summer Training Program Award mechanism was first offered in FY04. Since then, 72 Collaborative Undergraduate HBCU Student Summer Training Program Award applications have been received, and 44 have been recommended for funding.
The Collaborative Undergraduate HBCU Student Summer Training Program Award supports the training of the next generation of prostate cancer researchers. The intent of this award is to provide educational and training opportunities for undergraduate HBCU students at an important decision-making point in their careers. This award funds new or existing summer training programs in prostate cancer research for undergraduate students from HBCU at host institutions with ongoing prostate cancer research. Training programs are highly encouraged to include, among the projects proposed, exposure to and/or experiences in prostate cancer health disparity research.
1For purposes of this program announcement, the term “HBCU” is used to indicate a single institution or multiple institutions.
The following are key aspects of this award:
Program Director: The primary Principal Investigator (PI) submitting the application is designated as the Program Director. The Program Director’s institution will host the summer training program and provide educational and training opportunities for undergraduate HBCU students. The Program Director and his/her institution must have a record of achievement in prostate cancer research and in research training. This person will collaborate with faculty advisors from the undergraduate trainees’ HBCU. If the Program Director’s institution is an HBCU, then the undergraduate trainees must be recruited from a different HBCU. Although a single individual at the host institution must be clearly designated as the PI, it is expected that the application will name and describe the qualifications of multiple mentors in prostate cancer research. The mentor(s) must show a commitment to the undergraduate trainees’ HBCU through a plan to provide additional mentoring opportunities to participating trainees at the institution beyond the summer internship period. Applicants must enroll a minimum of four undergraduate HBCU trainees per year, who may be recruited from multiple HBCU.
HBCU Undergraduate Student Trainee(s): The trainees in this program must be undergraduate students from an HBCU. If the Program Director’s institution is an HBCU, then the undergraduate trainees must be recruited from a different HBCU. Trainees can be named or designated “to be named” (TBN) at the time of application submission; however, the criteria for selection of the trainees at the HBCU must be described in detail within the application’s project narrative. Trainees must spend 8 to 12 weeks during the summer participating in the research program at the PI’s host institution.
HBCU Faculty Advisor(s): The HBCU faculty advisor(s) at the trainees’ institution(s) will collaborate with the Program Director at the host institution to select and mentor the trainees. The Faculty Advisor is also responsible for working with the Program Director to coordinate trainee activities during both the summer training program and throughout the corresponding academic year.
Applications for this award should address the following key aspects for the proposed prostate cancer training program:
• The qualifications of the PI and other program faculty and staff who will serve as collaborating mentors, including their track records in training undergraduate students;
• The proposed training program for the undergraduate HBCU trainees at the PI’s institution, including research projects, seminars/symposia, coursework, etc.;
• The plans for recruitment of undergraduate HBCU trainees and for continued interaction of the PI with the trainees beyond the summer internship period;
• The qualifications and roles of the faculty advisor(s) at the trainees’ HBCU, who will be responsible for working with the PI to coordinate trainee activities during both the summer training program and throughout the corresponding academic year.
In addition, proposed training programs are expected to address at least one of the PCRP focus areas and are highly encouraged to address one of the PCRP overarching challenges.
