NIGMS will consider providing supplemental funding in one year increments to a pre-existing (i.e., awarded prior to Fiscal Year 2020) Bridges to the Baccalaureate, Bridges to the Doctorate, RISE, and IMSD R25 program that encounters a gap in funding as a consequence of the restructuring of the NIGMS diversity enhancing programs. Pre-existing diversity enhancing programs will be allowed to reach the end of their grant cycles; however, going forward, each institution will be eligible for one undergraduate program (either a MARC T34 or a U-RISE T34), one Ph.D. level graduate program (either a IMSD T32 or a G-RISE T32), and master's students will be supported exclusively through the Bridges to the Doctorate program. For cases where parallel programs for undergraduates, master's, and/or Ph.D. level participants or trainees end at the same time, there is no need for supplemental funding. If, however, a gap is experienced because of staggered end dates, there may be a need for supplemental funding to provide support for trainees during this transition period.
To be eligible, the R25 grant must be active at the time of a supplemental funding request submission. If a new diversity enhancing award is issued after Fiscal Year 2020 with a T activity code (T34 for undergraduates and T32 for graduate students) to support the same level of participants in the training pathway, the pre-existing R25 program will not be eligible for supplemental funding, unless otherwise justified.
All applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In making funding recommendations, only the programs that meet the following criteria will be considered:
