Funding News Edition: April 21, 2021
See more articles in this edition

If you are a faculty investigator without current NIH research project grants and your educational institution receives limited NIH research funding, check out the new Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program.

SuRE grant funds can help build research capacity, develop and sustain research excellence, and provide research experience to students from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical science.

Find full details on how to apply, qualifications, program considerations, budget amounts, and more in the SuRE funding opportunity announcements (FOAs):

You can also check out presentation slides from the SuRE webinar.

Note: Each FOA uses different annual application due dates through 2023, so be sure to follow the Key Dates table shown in your chosen FOA. For example, the first due date for PAR-21-169 is May 26, 2021, and the first for PAR-21-173 is September 28, 2021.

Find NIH staff contacts listed in Section VII. Agency Contacts of your chosen FOA. Direct your application questions to the scientific/research program contact relevant to your area of science. For NIAID, contact Diane Adger-Johnson.
