Opportunity PAR-08-079: Purpose. The purpose of the NIMH Research Education Program is to foster the development of mental health researchers via creative and innovative research educational programs. The NIMH encourages educational programs that will attract, train, and advance the career development of scientists committed to research careers relevant to the mission of the NIMH. These programs may be designed as institutional, regional or national programs. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research education program 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 mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. Budget and Project Period: The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed five years. Direct costs are limited to $250,000 annually. Personnel costs may not exceed 25% of the total direct costs in any year of the project period. Eligible Institutions/Organizations. Institutions/organizations listed in Section III, 1.A. are eligible to apply. Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs): Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research education program are invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. The PD/PI should be an established investigator in the scientific area in which the application is targeted who is capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the proposed research education program. Number of PDs/PIs: More than one PD/PI, or multiple PDs/PIs, may be designated on the application. Number of Applications. Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each application is scientifically distinct. Research education programs may not be transferred from one institution to another. Renewals and Resubmissions. Renewal applications are allowed (see Section II.1). Up to two resubmissions (formerly revisions/amendments ) of a previously reviewed research education grant application may be submitted. See NOT-OD-07-015, November 13, 2006.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply. Eligible agencies of the Federal Government can apply. Faith-based or community-based organizations can apply. Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply in response to this FOA. Foreign Justification: If the research education project includes a foreign component, applications must provide a justification by describing special resources or characteristics of this component of the project, whether similar projects are being conducted in the United States and whether there is a need for additional research education projects in this area. For a definition of a substantial foreign component, see Definitions section of PHS 398, Part III: Policies, Assurances, Definitions, and Other Information. In many cases, it is anticipated that the proposed research education program will complement other ongoing research training occurring at the applicant institution and that a substantial number of program faculty will have active research projects in which participants may gain relevant experiences consistent with their research interests and goals. Institutions with existing Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional training grants (e.g., T32) or other federally funded training programs may apply for a research education grant provided that the proposed educational experiences are distinct from those training programs receiving NIH support. Moreover, the R25 mechanism is not intended to support long-term training by NRSA-eligible individuals and may not be used to circumvent or supplement support of individuals under Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA research training mechanisms. The NIMH does not allow support for full-time participants under the R25 mechanism, where a full-time effort is normally defined as 40 hours per week or as specified by the sponsoring institution in accordance with its own policies. If multiple sites are involved in the research education program, the applicant institution must be one of these sites for the program. The need for and use of multiple sites must be justified.
