I’m pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for a Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) U24 resource center (PAR-21-227) to broaden participation in the new SuRE R16 programs announced earlier this month, which replace the Support of Competitive Research (SCORE) program. The SuRE resource center will assist eligible institutions in building research capacity and training their professional staff and faculty.
Applicants to the SuRE resource center funding opportunity announcement are expected to have prior experience in managing multi-institutional endeavors and conducting outreach to a geographically diverse pool of applicants. Nonprofit institutions with a national reach (e.g., professional societies) are among those eligible to apply.
The application due date is September 24, 2021. If you’re interested in preparing an application, please join our informational webinar:
Tuesday, May 25, 4:00-5:30 p.m. ET
During the webinar, I’ll provide an overview of the U24 funding opportunity and share expectations for successful applications. You can send questions in advance to me or post them in the chat box during the event.
