The National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) supports educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs related to the mission of NIAID. This funding will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on: 

  • Courses for Skills Development: It is expected that the course(s) for skills development provide innovative, state-of-the-art, evidence-based education that relates to the mission of NIAID, and is derived from biomedical, behavioral or clinical research findings. For example, advanced courses in a specific discipline or research area, clinical procedures for research, specialized research techniques, or research methodology. The courses may include elements that promote research skills and career skills of the participants. The format of the courses may involve a traditional in-person approach, online activities, a hybrid of both approaches, or other methods.
  • Research Experiences: It is expected that the research experiences are relevant to the trainee’s area of science, yet sufficiently different such that it expands or extends their skills. The expanded experience has to meet the needs and career level of participants. Research experiences must also be designed to address some area of NIAID extramurally supported research. For example, for graduate and health professional students: to provide research experiences and related training not available through formal NIH training mechanisms; to provide hands-on authentic research experiences that reflect ownership of a project and provide opportunity for meaningful contribution to the research in question, and stimulate their interest to consider further education and training for future research related to the NIAID mission; for post doctorates and junior faculty: to extend their skills, experiences, and knowledge base and prepare them for a NIAID-related career research.
  • Mentoring Activities: Within the context of a mentoring network activities may include, but are not limited to, dedicated efforts at providing technical expertise, advice, insight, and professional career skills that advance the broad career goals of graduate students, post doctorates and/or early-career faculty; facilitating scholarly writing and grantsmanship; promoting successful transitions from one career stage to another; providing leadership development; helping to identify potential collaborators; helping to establish interdisciplinary or translational collaborations in order to foster a career trajectory towards independent NIAID-related research.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range up to $325,000.

Eligibility:   Eligible applicants include:

 

  • State, County, City and Tribal governments
  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education
  • Nonprofits that do not have a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education
  • Institutions of Higher Education
  • Other
