National Institute of General Medical Sciences

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces

two changes in application procedures for fellowships supported by the

Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program.  The NIGMS MARC

Program provides MARC Predoctoral Fellowships, which support

predoctoral research training for graduates of MARC Honors

Undergraduate Research Training programs, and MARC Faculty Fellowships,

which support research training at the pre- or postdoctoral level for

faculty of institutions having a substantial enrollment of students

from underrepresented ethnic minority groups.

The first policy applies to applications for both types of MARC

Fellowships, that is, both the Predoctoral and Faculty Fellowship

programs.  Applications for MARC fellowships will be accepted for the

April 5 and December 5 receipt dates ONLY; the NIGMS will no longer

accept MARC fellowship applications for the August 5 receipt date.

The second policy applies to applications for PREDOCTORAL training

support, including MARC Predoctoral Fellowships and those MARC Faculty

Fellowships that seek support for PREDOCTORAL training; it DOES NOT

apply to applicants seeking postdoctoral support in the MARC Faculty

Fellowship Program.  Beginning with the December 5, 1993 receipt date,

all applicants for MARC predoctoral support must indicate that EITHER

they are already enrolled in a Ph.D. or combined M.D./Ph.D. training

program OR they have been accepted by and agreed to enroll in a Ph.D.

or combined M.D./Ph.D. training program.  The training program must be

described in the application.  Applications that lack this information

at the time of the initial review will be deferred until this

information is received.
