This month we are posting notices of three on-going programs:
1. Minority Institution Travel Award Program (MITAP)
2. Research Supplements For Underrepresented Minorities
3. Research Supplements To Promote The Recruitment Of Individuals With
Disabilities Into Biomedical Research Careers
*********************************************************

MINORITY INSTITUTION TRAVEL AWARD PROGRAM (MITAP)

PA NUMBER: PA-99-002
Application receipt dates: At least 3 months prior to date of meeting,
course,
or workshop

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) invites applications to
support students and faculty in minority institutions to attend scientific
meetings, courses, and workshops relevant to the Human Genome Program. The
Minority Institution Travel Award Program (MITAP) has been established to
increase the participation of students and faculty from minority
institutions in
human genome research and research training programs.

RESEARCH SUPPLEMENTS FOR UNDERREPRESENTED MINORITIES

PA NUMBER: PA-99-104
Application receipt dates: Applications may be submitted at any time.

The NIH hereby notifies all Principal Investigators holding NIH research grants
that funds are available for administrative supplements to existing grants for
the support and recruitment of underrepresented minority investigators and
students. The aim of these supplements is to attract and encourage minority
individuals to enter and pursue biomedical and behavioral research careers in
areas within the missions of all the awarding components of the NIH by
providing
supplemental funds to certain ongoing research grants. The following types of
individuals can be supported under the supplement mechanism:

MINORITY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS who have expressed an interest in biomedical or
behavioral sciences;

MINORITY UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS who have demonstrated an interest in biomedical
or behavioral sciences and wish to pursue graduate level training in these
areas;

MINORITY PREDOCTORAL STUDENTS who wish to develop research capabilities in the
biomedical and behavioral sciences;

MINORITY POSTDOCTORAL STUDENTS who wish to participate as postdoctoral
researchers in ongoing research projects in preparation for independent careers
in biomedical or behavioral research; and

MINORITY STAFF AND FACULTY who wish to participate in ongoing research projects
while further developing their own independent research potential.

RESEARCH SUPPLEMENTS TO PROMOTE THE RECRUITMENT OF INDIVIDUALS WITH
DISABILITIES
INTO BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH CAREERS

PA NUMBER: PA-99-105
Application receipt dates: Applications may be submitted at any time.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its awarding components have
developed an initiative that is designed to extend opportunities to individuals
with qualifying disabilities who are capable of entering or resuming research
careers. It is hoped that the plan to provide funding at several different
stages in a research career will substantially increase the number of
individuals with disabilities in biomedical research. The NIH hereby notifies
Principal Investigators holding certain NIH research grants of the availability
of funds for administrative supplements to existing grants for the support and
recruitment of scientists and students with disabilities. The purpose of the
request will be to support a high school student, an undergraduate student, a
graduate research assistant, an individual in postdoctoral training, or a staff
or faculty member with a disability to participate in ongoing research
projects.
An individual with a disability is one who has a physical or mental impairment
that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Qualified
individuals with disabilities are those who, with reasonable accommodation for
their disability, are capable of entering a research career after appropriate
experience and training.
