Email:  duke3@niehs.nih.gov

NIEHS Specific Information:

  •  NIEHS will support applications focusing on summer research experiences in the environmental health sciences.
  • Programs will need to demonstrate a base of ongoing, independent research grant support in the environmental health sciences and environmental medicine, with a substantial portion of the base supported by the NIEHS.  As a benchmark, for the support of six summer positions, the proposed program should have a minimum research base of three independent NIH-funded research grants in the area of environmental health sciences from three different Principal Investigators.  These grants should have at least six months of support remaining at the time of submission, and not be administrative or supplement extensions.  Research grant support which is considered appropriate as a base for the research education projects includes:  R01, R21, R03, R37, P01, P42, P50, U-series (Cooperative Agreements), or other R-series grants.  Applications requesting fewer than 6 summer participants will be expected to have a funding base of least two independent NIH-funded research grants, and applications requesting more than 6 participants should have one additional distinct NIH-funded research grant per additional two summer participants.  The extent to which the research base is responsive to the mission of the NIEHS will be considered in the review.  This will include, to some extent, the amount of funding derived from the NIEHS.
  • Maximum Budget:  $55,000/year in direct costs.
  • Applications from existing NIEHS R25 STEER programs will be considered.
