Transformative Research to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity (U01 Clinical Trial Allowed)
The Transformative Research to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity initiative is soliciting applications to support collaborative investigative teams or individual scientists who propose unusually innovative research projects, which, if successful, would have a major impact in developing, implementing, or disseminating innovative and effective interventions to prevent, reduce, or eliminate health disparities and advance health equity. No preliminary data are required. Projects must clearly demonstrate, based on the strength of the logic, a compelling potential to produce a major impact in addressing health disparities and inequities.

Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI), one element of the University Research Initiative (URI), is sponsored by the DoD research offices including the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher education. The program is focused on multidisciplinary research efforts where more than one traditional discipline interacts to provide rapid advances in scientific areas of interest to the DoD.
AFOSR, ARO and ONR have identified 25 topic areas of interest, listed in the RFP beginning on page 8.
- Typical annual funding per grant is in the $1.25M to $1.5M range, see topic areas for more information.
- White Paper Inquiries and Questions due by May 24, 2021
- White papers due June 7, 2021
- Application Inquiries and Questions due September 13, 2021
- Full applications due September 27, 2021
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA)
Measurement and Monitoring Methods for Air Toxics and Contaminants of Emerging Concern in the Atmosphere The EPA is seeking applications proposing research to advance air measurement and monitoring methods for air toxics and contaminants of emerging concern in the atmosphere. Specifically, this RFA seeks research that will provide: advancements in measurement techniques for real time, continuous measurements of concentrations with minimum detection limits below background concentrations or health risk-based thresholds; and advancements in stationary or mobile near source measurement methods for quantifying emission rates of fugitive emissions. There will be four awards distributed (two for early-career PIs, two for unrestricted PIs).
- Full proposal due June 2, 2021
- Up to $800,000 for 3 years for early regular awards
- Up to $400,000 for 3 years for early career awards
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
Alliances for Graduate Education and Professoriate (AGEP) The NSF’s Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program contributes to the National Science Foundation’s objective to foster the growth of a more capable and diverse research workforce.1 Through this solicitation, the NSF seeks to build on prior AGEP work, and other research and literature concerning racial and ethnic equity, in order to address the AGEP program goal to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority faculty in STEM.2 Furthering the AGEP goal requires advancing knowledge about new academic STEM career pathway models, and about evidence-based systemic or institutional change initiatives to promote equity and the professional advancement of the AGEP populations who are pursuing, entering and continuing in non-tenure and tenure-track STEM faculty positions. The use of the term “historically underrepresented minority” reflects language from Congress, and in the context of the AGEP program, the AGEP populations are defined as STEM doctoral candidates, postdoctoral scholars and faculty, who are African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders. The terms for these racial and ethnic populations are derived from the US government’s guidance for federal statistics and administrative reporting. At the graduate student level, only doctoral candidates are included because they have greater potential to enter a faculty position within the project duration time frame.
- Required Letter of Intent due June 2, 2021
- Full Proposal due August 2021. See Solicitation for exact date corresponding with track
