Education Grants (R25)

NICHD sponsors education grants for summer research experiences and short courses using the R25 mechanism.

  • Purpose: Supports institutions that provide high-quality research experiences for high school and college students and for science teachers during the summer academic break; summer research experiences must be in priority scientific, health-related research fields relevant to the NICHD mission
  • Eligibility: The Program Director/Principal Investigator and other faculty providing laboratory experiences are generally expected to have research grant support, as well as specific support from NICHD. If some faculty mentors do not have NICHD support, the application must clearly describe how the program and summer research experiences relate to NICHD's mission.
