*** Notice posted on August 14, 2007, in NIH Guide: "Effective for the
September 18, 2007 application submission/receipt date, an eligible
applicant or partner institution may participate in more than one
Bridges to the Baccalaureate/Bridges to the Doctorate partnerships if
strongly justified by the potential to magnify the program's and
institution's outcomes. The applicant institution must clearly describe
the value added of an institution partnering with more than one Bridges
to the Baccalaureate or Bridges to the Doctorate partnerships and
provide evidence of a large pool of eligible students who would benefit
from multiple partnerships and/or the institution's track record of
enrolling and graduating targeted students with baccalaureate or Ph.D.
degree (as applicable) in biomedical/behavioral sciences. All other
eligibility criteria remain unchanged."
This FOA will use the NIH Research Education Grant (R25) award
mechanism. The total amount to be awarded is approximately $12.0 million
(total costs) per year for new and renewal applications for the Bridges
to the Future (Bridges to the Baccalaureate and Bridges to the
Doctorate) Programs. The anticipated number of new and renewal Bridges
to the Baccalaureate awards is six to nine per year. The total project
period for an application submitted in response to this funding
opportunity may not exceed five years. The size of award will vary with
the scope of the research education program proposed.
The purpose of this funding opportunity, jointly sponsored by the
National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and National
Center for Minority Health Disparities (NCMHD), is to increase the
number of students from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and
behavioral research enterprise of the nation and/or populations
disproportionately affected by health disparities (hereafter referred to
as targeted groups/populations) who successfully complete the
baccalaureate degree in biomedical and behavioral sciences. This
initiative promotes inter-institutional partnerships between community
colleges or other two-year post-secondary educational institutions
granting the associate degree and colleges or universities that offer
the baccalaureate degree with the goal of developing well-integrated
developmental activities that will increase students' preparation and
skills as they advance academically in the pursuit of the baccalaureate
and subsequently more advanced degrees in biomedical and behavioral
Each proposed Bridges to the Baccalaureate program must consist of a
partnership/consortium composed of no more than four institutions
(unless strongly justified otherwise), including the applicant
institution. One must be an institution that offers the associate degree
as the only undergraduate degree in the biomedical and behavioral
sciences within the participating departments. Another institution must
be a college or university granting the baccalaureate degree in
biomedical and behavioral sciences.
