MARC Ancillary Training Activities provide support for underrepresented students and/or faculty from minority-serving institutions to participate in scientific conferences, scientific short courses or other well-defined activities that further the MARC mission. The activity/activities must provide participants with the knowledge, skills and/or networking capabilities to pursue and thrive in biomedically-related research careers. Applications may be submitted by U.S. institutions, including scientific or professional societies. The responsibility for planning, managing and conducting the MARC ancillary activity lies solely with the applicant organization. The applicant must set measurable goals and specific objectives against which the T36 program will use for self-assessment and will be evaluated for continual improvement and further funding. Variation among programs is expected and any amount of funds may be requested, as long as the rationale is strongly justified. The grant is for up to 5 years and is renewable.
