We’re pleased to announce that the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) (PAR-20-125) has been issued.
NARCH fosters opportunities for biomedical research and career enrichment to meet health needs prioritized by American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribally based organizations. The NARCH initiative also supports research capacity building, including the development of research infrastructure to enhance the biomedical research capabilities of AI/AN communities. NARCH grants are awarded directly to federally recognized tribes or tribal organizations that may partner with research-intensive institutions.
This funding opportunity will support a combination of components including: 1) career enhancement, which encompasses both student and faculty career development; 2) both pilot and research projects; and 3) capacity building, which encompasses development of infrastructure to support both career development and research sustainability.
For additional information about this initiative, including lists of participating NIH institutes and offices and currently funded NARCH programs, please visit the NARCH webpage.
