The NIH BRAIN Initiative and NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research intend to reissue funding for a research program for neuroscience-focused undergraduates from diverse backgrounds. This funding opportunity is expected to be published in August 2023.
The NIH BRAIN Initiative is deeply committed to fostering diversity, inclusivity, and engagement at all levels in the research community and will join the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research in support of the program for Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education (ENDURE).
The goal of this funding opportunity is to increase the number of undergraduate participants from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, who successfully enter and complete Ph.D. programs in the neurosciences. To accomplish this goal, this funding opportunity would:
Support the development of collaborative research education partnerships to increase awareness and interest in neuroscience
Develop participants’ scientific knowledge and research skills
Establish working networks within existing Ph.D. degree granting institutions and NIH-supported predoctoral programs
This notice of funding opportunity is expected to be published in August 2023 with an expected application due date in February 2024.
