  4. ACADEMIC RESEARCH ENHANCEMENT AWARD (AREA) (PA-03-053)
    APPLICATION RECEIPT DATES: January 25, May 25, September 25
    AIDS-RELATED APPLICATION RECEIPT DATES: May 1, September 1, January 2
    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is continuing to make a special effort to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced training for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. AREA funds are intended to support new ("type 1") and continuing ("renewal" or "competing continuation" or "type 2") health-related research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible schools and components of domestic institutions. To determine the eligibility of a school or component with regard to this requirement, applicants should consult the list of Ineligible schools/components on the AREA Web page at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/area.htm
    If the name of the school does not appear on the list, it may be eligible to apply for AREA grants. Applicants should check with their own institutions if unsure.
