Description of the Award: 

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research educational activities that complement other formal training programs in the mission areas of the NIH Institutes and Centers. The over-arching goal of this R25 program is to support educational activities that encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to pursue further studies or careers in research.

To accomplish the stated overarching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on:

Applications are encouraged from doctoral degree granting research-intensive institutions that propose to develop recent baccalaureate science graduates from diverse backgrounds (e.g., see NIH's Notice of Interest in Diversity) so that they have the necessary knowledge, skills, and networks to transition into and complete rigorous research-focused doctoral degree programs (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in biomedical fields.

  • Research Experiences: For example, to provide hands-on exposure to research, to prepare participants for graduate school admissions, successful completion of a research-focused doctoral degree, and careers in the biomedical research workforce.
  • Courses for Skills Development: For example, to provide advanced courses in a specific discipline, research technique or research area, and/or courses or workshops to develop scholarly potential to prepare participants for graduate school admissions, successful completion of a research-focused doctoral degree, and careers in the biomedical research workforce
