PAR-21-147 - Maximizing Access to Research Careers (T34)
National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) will host an informational webinar to provide advice and respond to questions from prospective applicants who plan to submit applications to PAR-21-146 "Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (U-RISE) (T34)" and PAR-21-147 “Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) (T34)” on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 3:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time.
NIGMS developed institutional eligibility tracks for review and funding of its undergraduate and graduate diversity enhancing programs based on NIH Research Project Grant (RPG) funding levels. The MARC program is limited to research-intensive institutions, i.e., those with an average of NIH RPG funding greater than or equal to $7.5 million total costs per year over the past 3 fiscal years. U-RISE is limited to research-active, i.e., those with an average of RPG funding less than $7.5 million total costs per year over the past 3 fiscal years. RPG data are available through NIH RePORTER.
