PURPOSE



The National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites applications to its

Cancer Education Grant Program designed to support innovative

educational efforts to reduce, directly or indirectly, cancer

incidence, morbidity, and mortality.  It also wishes to encourage

effective programs that promise improvement in the quality of life of

cancer patients.



HEALTHY PEOPLE 2000



The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health

promotion and disease prevention objectives of "Healthy People 2000,"

a PHS-led national activity for setting priority areas.  This Program

Announcement, Cancer Education, is related to the priority area of

educational and community-based programs.  Potential applicants may

obtain a copy of "Healthy People 2000: (Summary Report:  Stock No.

017-001-00473-1 or Full Report:  Stock No. 017-001-00474-0) through

the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office,

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS



Any not-for-profit or for-profit organization engaged in

health-related education, research, or training and located in the

United States or its territories may apply.



MECHANISM OF SUPPORT



The mechanism of support is the Cancer Education (R25) grant award.

In general, allowable costs must be consistent with PHS policy and

recommended by peer reviewers.  These costs include, but are not

limited to, supplies, personnel costs, student compensation,

consultant costs, equipment, travel, sub-contractual costs, other

expenses, and other student costs when appropriate.  Indirect costs

are payable at either their actual level or at the rate of eight

percent of total direct costs, depending upon which sum is smaller.

Tuition and equipment costs are to be excluded from the direct cost

base for the computation of the indirect cost amount.  All applicants

may request up to five years of support in a single grant period in

order to develop or maintain a specific education program.



RESEARCH OBJECTIVES



Reorganized in 1993, the Cancer Education Grant Program (CEGP) plans

to accomplish its objectives by providing institutions a wide range

of opportunities to develop and sustain unique, innovative

curriculum-driven programs that focus on various cancer education

activities.  These will be projects not normally supported by other

NIH grant mechanisms.  The target audiences for these programs can

range from biomedical researchers; health professionals; medical,

dental, nursing, and other health professional students; college and

high school students; to members of the lay community.

To apply for a CEGP award, applicants are to use the PHS research
