Receipt Date for Center (P30) Applications

This notice is to remind potential applicants that the receipt date for 
applications for the NIEHS Core Center Grants Program is February 1 each year. 
NIEHS Core Center Grants provide support for an administrative structure, 
scientific leadership, and shared equipment to multidisciplinary groups of 
productive scientists with programs in environmental health.  Direct research 
support is NOT provided by the grant, except for limited funds for pilot 

The NIEHS currently supports twenty-two Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) 
and five Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS) Centers.  Because 
of limitations on the number of Centers that can be supported and the special 
nature of the program, potential applicants are strongly urged to contact 
NIEHS staff to discuss the scope, content, size, and timing of any 
applications for this program.  Applications received for the February 1, 2002 
receipt date will compete with three extant EHS Core Centers and one extant 
MFBS Core Center for funding early in Fiscal Year 2003.  Please note that the 
minimum required research grant base in environmental health sciences for an 
EHS Center has increased from $1.5M to $3M.


Guidelines for this program, including eligibility requirements, fiscal 
limitations, review criteria, and additional information are available on the 
NIEHS website, http://www.niehs.nih.gov/centers or from:
