We’re pleased to announce that two funding opportunities for the new Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program, which replaces our Support of Competitive Research (SCORE) program, have been issued. SuRE R16 awards support investigator-initiated research projects in all NIH mission areas and are open to faculty at institutions that award science degrees (bachelor and/or graduate degrees), receive limited NIH research support, and serve students from groups underrepresented in biomedical research. Faculty with prior experience in leading independent research who aren’t currently program directors/principal investigators of active NIH research project grants may apply for a SuRE Award (PAR-21-169). Faculty who haven’t had any prior independent research grant support are encouraged to apply for the SuRE-First Award (PAR-21-173).
The first application due dates are May 26, 2021 (SuRE Award) and September 28, 2021 (SuRE-First Award). If you’re preparing an application for either funding opportunity, please join our informational webinar:
Tuesday, April 13, 3:00-4:30 p.m. ET
