RELEASE DATE:  June 3, 2003

NOTICE:  NOT-GM-03-105   

National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)

APPLICATION RECEIPT DATES:   February 1, June 1 and October 1 (same 
submission dates as for new and competing renewal MBRS applications)

The Minority Biomedical Support Program (MBRS) of the National Institute 
of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) reminds MBRS-funded Research 
Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) and Support of Continuous 
Research Excellence (SCORE) grantees that they may apply for competing 
evaluation supplements.  These supplements should be designed by the 
grantee institution to obtain resources for the expansion of meritorious 
areas of program evaluation that can add to the knowledge base of how 
and why different elements of an MBRS program work and thus contribute 
to achieving the program's goals and objectives.  The proposed 
evaluation analysis should be related to the goals and objectives of the 
parent grant but should answer additional questions not contemplated in 
the scope of the original evaluation plan.

As with all MBRS competing supplements, the grantee institution must 
have an active MBRS RISE or SCORE grant with at least 24 months of 
support remaining on the requested start date of the supplemental award.  
Requested start dates may not be sooner than 10 months after submission 
of the competing supplement application, and the supplement may not 
extend beyond the parent grant period.  The Principal Investigator of 
the supplement must be the Program Director of the parent grant.  
Grantees may request funds for needed personnel/consultants in addition 
to services/materials required.  A request that is solely for 
administrative personnel will not be considered.  Applicable facilities 
and administrative costs will also be awarded. 

Receipt dates are the same as for the submission of competing/new MBRS 
grant applications.  The application procedure is the same as for any 
competing MBRS supplemental application.  More complete information can 
be found at
