This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications from sites not currently part of the Common Fund Enhancing Diversity in the Biomedical Research Workforce initiative, also known as the Diversity Program Consortium (DPC), to expand the national impact of the program. The purpose is to provide funds to institutions to implement DPC scientific approaches to understanding the effectiveness of biomedical research training, mentoring or research capacity building interventions aimed at enhancing diversity in the biomedical research workforce.
The long-term impact of this catalytic, trans-NIH program will be in the broad dissemination of effective, evidence-based training and mentoring strategies. The DPC’s methods of taking a scientific approach to understanding training, mentoring and research capacity building interventions is an innovative design that is likely to serve as a model for biomedical training programs across the Nation. The purpose of this FOA is to provide funds to institutions to take the DPC scientific approach to understanding the effectiveness of biomedical research training, mentoring or research capacity building interventions aimed at enhancing diversity in the biomedical research workforce.
NIH intends to fund up to 12 awards in FY 2020 and commit $3,000,000 total costs per year.
