On February 8, 2008, the NIMH issued a Program Announcement (PAR-08-093) entitled, “National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Career Opportunities in Research (COR) Honors Undergraduate Research Training Grant (T34)”. This notice is to inform the scientific community of the following revisions to the announcement.
Section II. Award Information (2) Funds Available
D. Training Related Expenses (TRE): The applicant institution may request TRE for each appointed trainee to help defray certain training expenses. These costs may include health insurance for each trainee, limited support for administrative staff salaries, curriculum enhancement, a modest amount of equipment needed to upgrade the curriculum, consultant costs, research supplies, faculty/staff travel directly related to the research training program, and program evaluation. Workshops designed to improve performance on specific tests (e.g., GRE, MCAT) are not allowed, nor is support for mentoring the COR trainees. Requests for TRE costs must be itemized by cost category and justified in the application.
Applicants requesting TRE in excess of 25% of the total direct costs are strongly advised to contact NIMH program staff prior to submitting an application.
Section IV. Application and Submission Information (6) Other Submission Requirements
Research Training Program: The current requirement that COR T34 research training applicants request a minimum of eight trainee positions per grant year is rescinded. Instead, because the depth and quality of the applicant pool and availability of preceptors may vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the number of trainee positions requested may also vary. It should be noted, however, that applicants requesting more than eight trainee positions per year are strongly advised to contact NIMH program staff prior to submitting an application.
Institutional Settings and Characteristics: This section should describe the nature and extent of the participation of students from diverse groups at the institution. Institutional data must include:
This notice applies to applications for the May 12, 2009 and May 12, 2010 receipt dates.
