NICHD Specific Information:

  • NICHD accepts R25 applications to support summer research experiences in areas relevant to normal and abnormal human development, including: contraception, fertilization, pregnancy, childbirth, prenatal and postnatal development; childhood development through adolescence; intellectual and developmental disabilities; and rehabilitation medicine.  More information about NICHD’s mission areas can be found at http://www.nichd.nih.gov/grants-funding/opportunities-mechanisms/areas-research/Pages/default.aspx. The PD/PI and other faculty providing laboratory experiences are generally expected to have research grant support, as well as specific support from NICHD. If some faculty do not have NICHD support, the application must clearly describe how the program and summer research experiences relate to NICHD's mission. Preference will be given to programs that offer experiences not otherwise available to participants, and to programs that involve participants from more than a single school/institution.
  • Maximum budget:  $100,000 direct costs per year.

Email:  williamsjr@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.

  • Direct costs may not exceed $100,000 annually; personnel costs may not exceed 25% of the requested direct costs in any year.
  • The NIMH is particularly interested in programs that incorporate multidisciplinary approaches to address research questions focused on the mission of the NIMH. Areas of interest span the full range of basic neuroscience, human genetics, the translational integration of neuroscience, behavioral science, clinical, and mental health services research to identify the etiology, pathogenesis, developmental progression and prevention or cure of mental disorders across the lifespan, and mental health and central nervous system-related aspects of HIV/AIDS research. See the NIMH Strategic Plan for additional information about the Institute’s research priorities; for AIDS-related applications, see the priorities of the NIMH Division of AIDS Research.
