Research Grant Programs
Diversity Organ and Tissue Donation
To address the present health disparities, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), in collaboration with the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD), established the organ and tissue donation program. With more organs and tissues from minority groups in the donor pool, the survival rates and quality of life of their members are expected to improve.
Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH)
The Indian Health Service (IHS) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health have a joint partnership supporting the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH). The NARCH initiative, started in the year 2000, supports partnerships between AI/AN Tribes or Tribally-based organizations and institutions that conduct intensive academic-level biomedical, behavioral and health services research.
Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS)
Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) programs are aimed at increasing the number of faculty, students and investigators who are members of groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. Historically, individuals who have been found to be underrepresented in biomedical or behavioral research include, but are not limited to, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans (including Alaska Natives), and natives of the U.S. Pacific Islands.
Research Enhancement Awards (SC1, SC2, SC3)
SCORE is a developmental program that seeks to increase the research competitiveness of investigators at minority-serving institutions with 50 percent or more enrollments of students from groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research, and to increase the research capabilities of these institutions.
NIDDK Small Grants for Clinical Scientists to Promote Diversity in Health-related Research (R03)
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide support for clinical scientists from underrepresented racial/ethnic backgrounds, disadvantaged backgrounds or clinical scientists with disabilities to conduct small research projects in the area of diabetes, endocrinology, metabolism, digestive diseases, hepatology, obesity, nutrition, kidney, urology, or hematology. The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources.
NRSAs for Individual Predoctoral Fellowships to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (F31)
The purpose of this individual predoctoral research training fellowship is to improve the diversity of the health-related research workforce by supporting the training of predoctoral students from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented. Such candidates include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
