Research Grants: Research grants and cooperative agreements are intended to support the direct costs of a project, in accordance with an approved budget, plus an appropriate amount for indirect costs. Environmental health sciences education grants are limited to $100,000 direct costs plus indirect costs calculated at 8 percent of appropriate direct cost base, and they should promote the development of instructional material. SBIR Phase I grants (of approximately 6-months' duration) are to establish the technical merit and feasibility of a proposed research effort that may lead to a commercial product or process. Phase II grants are for the continuation of the research initiated in Phase I and that are likely to result in commercial products or processes. Only Phase I awardees are eligible to receive for Phase II support. STTR Phase I grants (normally of 1-year duration) are to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed cooperative effort that has potential for commercial application. Phase II funding is based on results of research initiated in Phase I and scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of Phase II application. Independent Scientist Awards (supersedes the former Research Career Development Award): These awards in amounts up to $50,000 (plus fringe benefits and 8 percent indirect costs) are made to institutions to provide stable salary support for the development of newly independent scientists to enable them to expand their potential to make significant contributions to their field of research. Supplementation from nonfederal funds is allowed. Mentored Research Scientist Development Awards (encompass the previous Mid-Career Development Awards and the Minority School Faculty Development Awards): These awards in amounts up to $50,000 (plus fringe benefits, 8 percent indirect costs, and $10,000 for research support) are made to institutions to provide salary and supplies for research scientists who need an additional period of sponsored research as a way to gain experience in a research area new to the candidate or in an area that would demonstrably enhance the candidate's scientific career. Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (encompasses the previous Physician Scientist Awards and Clinical Investigator Awards). Awards up to $50,000 (salary) $10,000 to $20,000 for research support plus 8 percent indirect costs and fringe benefits to provide for specialized study for clinically trained professionals who are committed to a career in research and have the potential to develop into independent investigators. Supplementation from nonfederal funds is allowed. Academic Career Awards (supersedes the Academic Award in Environmental/Occupational Medicine): Up to $50,000 (salary), $10,000 to $20,000 for research support, plus 8 percent indirect costs and fringe benefits to develop Environmental/Occupational Medicine curriculum/faculty at schools of medicine and osteopathy. Supplementation from nonfederal funds is allowed.
