Individual Awards

The purpose of the MOSAIC Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) program is to support a cohort of early career, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds conducting research in NIH mission areas. The long-term goal of this program is to enhance diversity in the biomedical research workforce.

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

Institutional Grants

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.
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 Enhancement Programs (AREA and REAP)

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

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.
