SuRE R16 Program Funding Announcements and Upcoming Webinar


UPDATE: The SuRE webinar occurred on April 2. The video and presentation slides [PDF] are now available.

We’re pleased to announce that two funding opportunities for the Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program have been reissued.

SuRE awards support investigator-initiated research projects in NIH mission areas and are open to faculty at institutions that award bachelor and/or graduate science degrees, receive limited NIH research support, and either serve a substantial number of students supported by Pell grants or are historically Black colleges and universities or Tribal colleges and universities. Faculty investigators who aren’t currently program directors/principal investigators (PD/PIs) of an active NIH research project grant are eligible to apply for a SuRE award (PAR-24-144). Faculty who haven’t had any prior independent research funding as PD/PIs are encouraged to apply for the SuRE-First award (PAR-24-145).

Next application receipt date: May 29, 2024
Earliest start date: April 2025

We strongly encourage all potential applicants and institutional officials to attend our upcoming preapplication webinar:

Tuesday, April 2, 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET

During the webinar, we’ll present an overview of the SuRE and SuRE-First program objectives, go over changes from the prior notices of funding opportunities, and share our expectations for successful applications.
