Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program for Underrepresented Students (R25): -Purpose. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to establish partnerships between community colleges or other two year post secondary educational institutions granting associate degrees and colleges or universities that offer baccalaureate degrees to develop programs that prepare associate degree students with academic potential for admission and successful completion of undergraduate degree program in biomedical and/or behavioral science related subjects. Students eligible to participate in this program are those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical science research arena of the nation (underrepresented groups) and/or populations disproportionately affected by health disparities (health disparities populations). It is anticipated that this initiative will promote effective inter-institutional partnerships to improve the quality and quantity of students from underrepresented groups and or health disparities populations being trained as the next generation of biomedical research scientists. -Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism. -The total amount to be awarded for new, renewal, and continuation awards for the two Bridges to the Future Programs (Bridges to the Baccalaureate and Bridges to the Doctorate) through this announcement is about $14 million per year and it is anticipated that a total of six to nine new awards will be made each year.
