We’re pleased to announce a virtual “office hour” for people interested in applying for our Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) and Graduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (G-RISE) programs. The next application due date for both programs is January 30, 2023.
These research training programs share the goal of developing a diverse pool of scientists earning a biomedical Ph.D., but have different institutional eligibility based on NIH research project grant (RPG) support. IMSD eligibility is limited to research-intensive institutions (i.e., those with an average of funding greater than or equal to $7.5 million total costs over the last 3 fiscal years) while G-RISE eligibility is limited to research-active institutions (i.e., those with an average of NIH RPG funding less than $7.5 million total costs over the last 3 fiscal years).
During the meeting, we’ll provide a brief overview of the IMSD and G-RISE funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) and answer your programmatic, budget, and scientific review questions. Those interested in joining the office hour are strongly encouraged to review the 2021 IMSD/G-RISE webinar and companion slide deck [PDF] prior to the meeting.
