Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD)(R25): The Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Program was created in response to a legislative mandate to increase the numbers of underrepresented minority faculty, investigators and students engaged in biomedical and behavioral research, and to broaden the opportunities for underrepresented minority faculty and students for participation in biomedical and behavioral research. To accomplish this goal, the Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD) program provides, at research institutions, institutional grants for students from groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research with well integrated developmental activities that will increase their preparation and skills as they advance academically in the pursuit and successful completion of the Ph.D. degree.

Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply. Sponsoring Institution: The sponsoring institution must assure support for the proposed research education project. Appropriate institutional commitment to the project includes the provision of adequate staff, facilities, and educational resources that can contribute to the planned research education project. Student Participants: The participants are selected by the applicant institution. There is no specific eligibility requirement for participation in IMSD-supported activities. The program should not deny participation to anyone based solely on his/her race, religion, gender or ethnicity. However, to receive salary support from the IMSD program, students must be U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals or permanent residents and must be matriculated full-time in baccalaureate or doctoral degree programs in biomedical or behavioral science fields at the applicant institution. (A non-citizen national is a person who, although not a citizen of the United States, owes permanent allegiance to the U.S. This is generally a person born in a land that is not a state, but that is under U.S. sovereignty, jurisdiction, or administration -- for example, American Samoa.)
