Extramural Associates Research Development Award (Earda): Faculty Research Enhancement Support Program (Fresp): The Extramural Associates (EA) Program, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), NIH, announces two initiatives directed at scientific faculty and academic science administrators of women's colleges and of institutions with significant underrepresented minority (i.e., Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic, or Native American) student populations. The two initiatives target two different types of institutions. The Sponsored Research Infrastructure Program (SRIP) is published in a companion RFA (RFA HD-03-007). This RFA describes the Faculty Research Enhancement Support Program (FRESP) and is intended for non-research-intensive EA-eligible institutions granting the baccalaureate degree as the highest degree in the biomedical or behavioral sciences. Selected community colleges that have established collaborative research activities or bridge programs with institutions that award at least a baccalaureate science degree are also eligible. The goal of these initiatives is to increase the participation of these institutions in biomedical and behavioral research and research training through an integrated residency and institutional grant support program. The objectives of the FRESP program, with its ten-week NIH residency summer experience, are to: (1) enhance faculty opportunities to conduct biomedical and behavioral research and research training; (2) increase the Extramural Associate's (EA) (i.e., participant in the residency EA Program) knowledge of the NIH and related agencies' research and research training funding opportunities; (3) develop skills in the fundamentals of preparing research grant applications, research contract proposals, training grant and fellowship applications; (4) aid undergraduate institutions and a selected group of community colleges in developing collaborative and consortium arrangements with other academic institutions; (5) assist EAs in increasing student participation in research; and (6) assist EAs in effectively guiding students toward careers in science and research. A major focus addresses strategies and processes for attracting women and underrepresented minority undergraduate students into research experiences that will lead to biomedical and behavioral research careers. It is anticipated that the individuals participating in the program will become the institutional focal point in promoting biomedical and behavioral research and research training activities among students and faculty and, where appropriate, establish or become a resource for an Office of Research Development at the applicant institution.
