NCRR Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA): - The National Center for Research Resources invites applications for Science Education Partnership Awards (SEPA) program whose goals are to foster the development of novel programs to improve K-12 and the general public's understanding of the clinical trial process as well as the health science advances stemming from National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded clinical and basic research. The SEPA program supports the creation of innovative partnerships between biomedical and clinical researchers and K-12 teachers and schools, museum and science center educators, media experts, and other interested educational organizations. Particular importance will be given to SEPA applications that target K-12 science educational topics that may not be addressed by existing science curricula, community-based or media activities. - Funds available: NCRR is providing approximately $3 million in FY 2005 to support this initiative. Applicants may request a budget for direct costs of up to $250,000 per year. Applicants may choose to submit: a three year Development (Phase I) application, a two year Dissemination (Phase II) application or a five year combined Development and Dissemination (Phase I + Phase II) application. - Number of individual awards: NCRR intents to fund approximately 10 new awards in FY 2005 in response to this PAR. Although the financial plans of the NCRR provide support for this program, awards pursuant to this PAR are contingent upon the availability of funds and the receipt of meritorious applications. - Mechanism of support: The NIH R25 award mechanism will be used. This PAR uses just-in-time concepts. It also uses the non-modular budgeting formats, so you must follow the instructions for non-modular budget research grant applications. - Eligible organizations: Domestic organizations with a scientific and/or educational mission are eligible to submit applications. Such entities include colleges and universities, state and local education agencies, biomedical-oriented professional societies, science technology centers, research laboratories, science centers and museums, media producers, private foundations, and other public and private education-related organizations, for-profit or non-profit. Faith-based organizations are also eligible to apply for this Program. Foreign organizations are not eligible to apply. - Eligible principal investigators : Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to plan, organize, and administer a SEPA project are eligible principal investigators and are invited to work with their organization and their K-12 partners to submit a SEPA application. An individual may be a principal investigator on only one SEPA grant application. - Number of applications each applicant organization may submit: An organization may submit only one application, and no organization may have more than one active SEPA project. - Application materials are available from: Applicants are strongly encouraged to use the PHS 398, Revision 9/04.
