Bridges to the Doctorate for Underrepresented Students (R25): -Purpose. The purpose of this funding opportunity to establish partnerships between institutions granting a terminal Master s degree and Ph.D. degree granting institutions to develop programs for Master s degree students with academic potential from groups underrepresented in the biomedical research arena of the country (underrepresented groups) and/or from populations disproportionately affected by health disparities (health disparity populations) to prepare them for successful completion of doctoral degree programs in the sciences relevant of biomedicine. 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. In addition, it is also anticipated that this initiative will eventually make available to the biomedical science research enterprise of the nation the intellectual talents of an increasing number of underrepresented scientists. -Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism. -The total amount awarded for new, renewal, and continuation awards for the two Bridges to the Future Programs (Bridges to the Doctorate and Bridges to the Baccalaureate) through this announcement is about $14 million per year and it is anticipated that a total of six to nine new awards for the Bridges to the Doctorate will be made each year.
