Research on Interventions that Promote Research Careers (R01) Grant

Submission Date: October 30, 2008

Estimated Total Program Funding: $2,400,000

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support research that will test explicitly identified assumptions and hypotheses that undergird existing or potential interventions intended to increase interest, motivation and preparedness for careers in biomedical and behavioral research, with a particular interest in those interventions specifically designed to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups entering careers in biomedical and behavioral research. The proposed research need not be restricted to underrepresented minority students. Comparative research that analyzes the experience of all groups in order to place that of underrepresented students in context and to learn whether and how interventions should be tailored to make more underrepresented students successful in biomedical careers may well be particularly illuminating and is, therefore, encouraged.
