SRP Funding Opportunities
Superfund Research Program
This page provides information on current and upcoming SRP funding opportunities, as well as basic information for those interested in applying for SRP grants.
Multiproject Center Grants (P42)
Multiproject Center Grants (P42) - Grants made under the SRP are for coordinated, multiproject, multi- and interdisciplinary Centers. The objective remains to establish and maintain a unique Center that links and integrates biomedical research with environmental science and engineering. Grant awards are made in response to requests for applications (RFA). The current FOA, RFA-ES-15-019, was released on September 17, 2015. The Letter of Intent Due Date is March 11, 2016, and the Application Due Date is April 11, 2016.
Notice of Change in Application Review Cycle Frequency for the Superfund Hazardous Substance Basic Research and Training Program (P42) (NOT-ES-15-018)
The purpose of this Notice is to update the extramural community of the intent of the NIEHS to lengthen the Superfund Hazardous Substance Basic Research and Training Program (P42) Center grant review cycle frequency. For more information, see NOT-ES-15-018.
Superfund Research Program Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25)
Superfund Research Program Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25) - The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of the SRP Occupational and Safety Education Programs on Emerging Technologies is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated goal, this funding opportunity will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on courses for skill development and curriculum or methods development. The intent is to provide Higher Education Institutions the opportunity to develop continuing education and academic curricula on the occupational health and safety management practices in the areas of emerging technologies (e.g., emerging hazardous waste products, green chemistry, sustainable remediation, and detection technologies) to industrial hygienists and graduate students involved in the research, evaluation, management, and handling of hazardous substances. The SRP also expects that such programs will provide a unique educational opportunity to those professionals involved in the training of other personnel for careers in these new industries. These programs are also meant to expand and complement existing educational programs in occupational and safety and health and industrial hygiene.
The deadline for application submission is October 20, 2015. For more information, see RFA-ES-15-014.
For more on the previous funding opportunity (beginning in 2013) and the current grantees, see RFA-ES-13-004 and the Currently Funded Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25).
