Supplements

Career Development Programs - Basic Research

Supports mentored career development of individuals proposing a career redirection in biomedical research
Supports mentored training for professionals with quantitative and engineering backgrounds

Career Development Programs - Clinical Research

Supports mentored career development of individuals proposing a career in clinical research
Supports mentored career development of individuals proposing a career in patient-oriented clinical research

Cross-Training Opportunities

This supplement is meant to facilitate a partnership between a clinician-scientist and a quantitative researcher to conduct a translational science research project. The project is expected to be jointly conceived and require significant contribution from both candidates. The quantitative research should have an expressed interest or history of conducting translational science and currently hold the position of tenure or research track assistant professor a similar faculty position. The partnering clinician-scientist should hold an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D or equivalent degree and should also have a demonstrated interest or history in conducting translational research.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites applications for mentored career enhancement (K18) awards in research areas that are highly relevant to the NIH BRAIN Initiative.

Individual Awards

Supports mentored training for postdoctoral fellows obtaining additional research experience
Enhances the research training of promising postdoctorates, early in their postdoctoral training period, who have the potential to become productive investigators in research areas that will advance the goals of the BRAIN Initiative.
Facilitates a timely transition from postdoctoral research to an independent research position

Individual Fellowships

The purpose of the Kirschstein-NRSA, dual-doctoral degree, predoctoral fellowship (F30) is to enhance the integrated research and clinical training of promising predoctoral students, who are matriculated in a combined MD/PhD or other dual-doctoral degree training program (e.g. DO/PhD, DDS/PhD, AuD/PhD, DVM/PhD), and who intend careers as physician-scientists or other clinician-scientists.
The NIBIB uses the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral Fellows (F31) to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research to provide support for research training leading to the Ph.D. or equivalent research degree.
The purpose of the NIH Blueprint Diversity Specialized Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Advancement in Neuroscience (D-SPAN) Award is to support a defined pathway across career stages for outstanding graduate students who are from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience research.

Institutional Grants

Supports high quality scientific conferences that are relevant to the NIH's mission and to the public health. A conference is defined as a symposium, seminar, workshop, or any other organized and formal meeting, whether conducted face-to-face or via the internet, where individuals assemble (or meet virtually) for the primary purpose to exchange technical information and views or explore or clarify a defined subject, problem, or area of knowledge, whether or not a published report results from such meeting.
The goal of the ESTEEMED program is to support educational activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce through early preparation for undergraduate students in STEM fields.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) to eligible, domestic institutions to enhance predoctoral and postdoctoral research training.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grants (T35) to eligible, domestic institutions to develop and/or enhance research training opportunities for predoctoral students interested in careers in biomedical, behavioral or clinical research.

This FOA encourages applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or programs.

BP-ENDURE supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this NIH Blueprint R25 program is to encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce, to pursue further studies or careers in neuroscience research.

Loan Repayment Program

Pays qualified educational debt for individuals committed to clinical research

Research Education Programs

Summer Research Experiences for Educators

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this R25 program is to support educational activities that foster a better understanding of biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and its implications. 

Research Enhancement Programs

Supports research at institutions that have not been major recipients of NIH support

REAP grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs.

Student Opportunities

The NIBIB-sponsored Biomedical Engineering Summer Internship Program (BESIP) is for undergraduate biomedical engineering students who have completed their junior year of college. The 10-week program, under the guidance of Dr. Robert Lutz, BESIP Program Director, allows rising senior bioengineering students to participate in cutting-edge biomedical research projects under the mentorship of world-class scientists in NIH laboratories in Bethesda, MD.
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) DEBUT Challenge is open to teams of undergraduate students working on projects that develop innovative solutions to unmet health and clinical problems.

Supplements to Existing Awards

This funding opportunity announcement is specifically and exclusively designed for use with PAR-12-085 and PAR-15-167 "NIBIB Research Education Programs for Residents and Clinical Fellows".

Supports individuals re-entering a research career after a hiatus

Funds are available for administrative supplements to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting and recruiting students, post-doctorates, and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research.

The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support research highlighting the impact of sex/gender differences (or similarities) and/or sex and gender factors in human health and illness, including preclinical, clinical and behavioral studies.

In addition to the opportunities on this page, senior postdoctoral fellows are eligible to apply for career awards on the Junior Investigator page, if allowed by their institution.
