  NIH: Coordination and Evaluation Center for Enhancing the Diversity of the NIH-Funded Workforce Program (U54)RFA-RM-13-015

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage institutions with expertise in data coordination and evaluation of research training, career development, and mentoring programs to submit applications for the establishment and operation of the Coordination and Evaluation Center (CEC) for the NIH Enhancing the Diversity of the NIH-Funded Workforce Program. This program will consist of three integrated initiatives: the Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) initiative, the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) and the CEC. Awardees funded through these initiatives will work together as a consortium which will be coordinated by the CEC. The CEC will facilitate the establishment of program-wide goals and agreed upon hallmarks of successful biomedical researchers at multiple career stages. The CEC will develop appropriate instruments and processes to assess the impact of BUILD and NRMN activities on attainment of these hallmarks by program participants. It will coordinate the collection of data from BUILD and NRMN awardees and other sources, assess the data in an ongoing way, provide feedback to the consortium and facilitate an iterative process of program adjustment to maximize the research benefit of BUILD and NRMN activities.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by January 27, 2014. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NIH indicates that a letter of intent is due on February 18, 2014 and a full proposal is due by March 18, 2014 . For more information:
