NSF Letter of Intent Deadline: Tuesday, May 1, 2012
NSF proposal Deadline: Monday, July 2, 2012

Program Synopsis

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills. The program is intended to establish new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce.

NIH (SCORE) Support of Competitive Research Program (SC1, SC2 and SC3)


White Paper: Friday, March 9, 2012
Committee Decision: Friday, March 30, 2012 (anticipated)
NIH SCORE Deadline: Wednesday, May 25, 2012

Program Synopsis

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. To better achieve these objectives, the SCORE Program offers separate funding opportunities for individual investigator-initiated research awards: Research Advancement (SC1), Pilot Projects (SC2) and Research Continuance (SC3). Research proposed under any of the investigator-initiated SCORE award mechanisms must fall within the scope of the NIH mission. NIH has three annual submission dates for SCORE proposals: Jan. 25, May 25 and Sept. 25.
