This Notice is to remind potential applicants of the single receipt

date of February 1 each year for this program.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) uses

a variety of award mechanisms to accomplish its mission of studying

the mechanisms and effects of environmental agents on human health.

Among these are Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Center Grants, a

program of core center support (P30).  The objective of this program

is to provide core support for an administrative structure,

scientific leadership, and shared core equipment to groups of

productive scientists with programs in environmental health.  The

award allows these scientists to:  (1) focus their research efforts

on issues of relevance to the NIEHS, (2) work in an environment

conducive to inter-disciplinary approaches to such research, (3)

serve as a resource to the NIEHS in providing scientific expertise on

critical public health issues and (4) engage in community outreach

and education programs dealing with regional environmental health

issues.  Direct research support is NOT provided by the grant, except

for limited funds for pilot projects or exploratory research.

The NIEHS currently supports thirteen EHS centers and five MFBS

centers.  The funding of additional centers is subject to budget and

other limitations.  Because of these limitations and the special

nature of the program, it is imperative that potential applicants

contact NIEHS staff to discuss the scope, content, size, and timing

of any applications for this program.  In 1994, two extant EHS

Centers will be competing for funding.


Guidelines for this program, including fiscal limitations, review

criteria, and additional information are available from:
