F31 – Individual NRSA for Diversity PhD Students
- Application due dates: April 13, August 13, and December 13
Provides up to five years of support for research training leading to the PhD or equivalent research degree, the combined MD/PhD degree, or another formally combined professional degree and research doctoral degree in biomedical, behavioral, health services, or clinical sciences.
K22 – NINDS Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research
- Application due dates: February 12, June 12, and October 12
Provides support for neuroscience researchers with a Ph.D., Ph.D./M.D. or equivalent, who have between 2 and 5 years of postdoctoral research training and who are not in a tenure-track (or equivalent) faculty position. This is a two-phase award that provides a maximum of 5 years of support: up to 3 years of support may be obtained during the advanced postdoctoral training period and up to 3 years of support may be obtained during a subsequent first faculty position.
Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research
- Provides supplements to existing NIH-funded active grants (see full announcement for specific mechanisms) to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting and recruiting students, postdoctorate, and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented.
NINDS Neuroscience Development for Advancing the Careers of a Diverse Research Workforce (R25)
- The goal is to support NINDS mission relevant programs to: (1) increase the pool of Ph.D.-level research scientists from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research who are neuroscience researchers (participation is limited to graduate, post-doctoral and/or junior-faculty career levels only); and (2) facilitate career advancement/transition of the participants to the next step of their neuroscience careers. The first receipt date is Jan 25, 2014 – applications are only accepted once a year
2014 NINDS Grant Writing Workshop for Diverse Researchers
Intensive Workshop on Grant Writing, Preparation and Submission in Neuroscience Research
NINDS provides biannual workshop focused on grant writing to improve the outcomes of the grant submissions from diversity investigators (see previous workshop)
The next workshop will be held July 21 - 22, 2014 at the Double Tree in Bethesda, MD.
Enable promising diverse postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty to finalize and highly competitive proposal to the NINDS for neuroscience research (e.g. K22, K01, R01, etc.) by the end of the workshop. We also welcome those NINDS diverse investigators who are currently working on resubmissions of K22, K01 or R01 applications. All participants MUST bring a copy of their draft research plan to the workshop, the goal is to help polish and provide advice on an already written high quality document.
In addition, the meeting will facilitate interaction among minority, disabled and disadvantaged investigators and also the development of scientific networks with established and experienced investigators who will serve as onsite mentors/coaches during the grant development sessions.
- The application deadline has been extended to April 22, 2014.
- February 24 - April 22, 2014: Applications to participate in this meeting will be accepted
- April 14, 2014: All successful applicants notified

***A limited amount of funding is available for travel awards.***
Travel awards (up to $1100) will be available to attendees residing outside of a 50 mile radius of Bethesda, MD.
- All aspects of neuroscience research are eligible; however priority will be given to those research topics that have primary NINDS mission relevance.
- Participation in this workshop is limited to U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents of the U.S. and emphasis will be placed on members of groups that fit NIH diversity definitions (see http://www.ninds.nih.gov/diversity_programs/definitions.htm)
To be considered please send a compiled PDF attachment with all the required items below:
- Cover letter (should explain intent to submit the K or R01 submission within 3-8 months after the workshop, describe institutional support and list current funding)
- Publication list
- Written draft of abstract with specific aims for the potential K or R01 submission (no more than 2 pages)
- Letters of support* (see description below)
*Letters of Support
Each applicant is required to obtain at least one letter of support for their application which must be submitted by the following persons:
- Department Chair or Division Head in registrant's institution or, if senior trainee, in institution where faculty position is anticipated. The letter of support should contain the following information:
- Statement of commitment to allow protected time for registrant to prepare for and participate in the workshop, to complete and submit NIH proposal, and, if funded, to execute the proposed research
- Registrant's research or senior faculty mentor (appropriate for those in mentored programs like the Diversity K22 or K01). The letter of support should contain the following information:
- Potential of registrant as an academic and as a researcher
- Adequacy of training and research experience to be competitive for an NIH research or research training award
- Mentor's qualifications (e.g. NIH or comparable funding track record) and plans for supporting the registrant in planning and writing a competitive research proposal
Please send all requests directly to the email box below: NINDSDiversityTraining@ninds.nih.gov
Once accepted, participants must agree to complete the Specific Aims and Research Strategy of the SF 424 as preparatory work prior to the Workshop. Participants will bring a laptop to revise and edit the document during the two day meeting.
