  NIH Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) Initiative (U54)RFA-RM-13-016

The NIH encourages institutions that seek to engage undergraduate students in innovative mentored research training programs to submit applications for cooperative agreement awards through the NIH Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) initiative, one of three new Common Fund initiatives that together aim to enhance diversity in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences research workforce. Addressing a major leakage point in the research workforce pipeline, BUILD awards are intended to support the design and implementation of innovative programs, strategies and approaches to transform undergraduate research training and mentorship. BUILD awards will also support institutional and faculty development to further strengthen undergraduate research training environments.

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.
