Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Pre-doctoral Fellowship (F31)

 

Description

The purpose of this Kirschstein-NRSA pre-doctoral fellowship (F31) award is to enhance the diversity of the health-related research workforce by supporting the research training of pre-doctoral students from population groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research workforce. Such individuals include those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, those with disabilities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Through this award program, promising pre-doctoral students will obtain individualized, mentored research training from outstanding faculty sponsors while conducting well-defined research projects in scientific health-related fields relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers. The proposed mentored research training is expected to clearly enhance the individual's potential to develop into a productive, independent research scientist.
