Brief Description:

The National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Research Education grant is a flexible and specialized mechanism designed to foster the development of neuroscience researchers through creative and innovative educational programs. Programs that focus on preparing diversity researchers in cross-disciplinary integration of neuroscience, including basic, translational, behavioral, prevention, clinical, and treatment research are encouraged. Of particular interest are educational experiences that will attract, train, and further the career development of underrepresented biomedical scientists to improve the diversity of the research workforce relevant to the mission of NINDS. The NIH expects efforts to diversify the workforce to lead to the recruitment of the most talented researchers from all groups; such candidates include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds and will be referred to below as “diversity research scientists” or “diversity trainees.” This mechanism of support is not to be used to substitute the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award training and fellowship mechanisms and policies supported by the NIH.
