The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)/ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invites grant applications for Training Project Grants (TPG) that are focused on occupational safety and health training and on research training. NIOSH is mandated to provide an adequate supply of qualified personnel to carry out the purposes of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91-596, 84 Stat. 1590), and the TPGs are one of the principal means for meeting this mandate. TPGs are programs at institutions that provide training in the core occupational safety and health areas of industrial hygiene (IH), occupational health nursing (OHN), occupational medicine residency (OMR), occupational safety (OS), as well as other closely related occupational safety and health (OSH) fields. Applicants proposing training programs in allied disciplines closely related to OSH must contact the program administrator identified in this announcement to discuss the concept and its relevance to OSH training program priorities. The NIOSH homepage provides a full description of occupational safety and health program areas, http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/programshtml.
Please submit a two-page letter of intent with a list of all anticipated investigators, description of proposed aims and approach, Biosketch of the PI, and a letter of support from the Dean or Chair to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 PM Thursday, April 17, 2014. Full proposals are due to the sponsor on 8/24/14, so you will need to have your materials in to the Office of Sponsored Programs by 8/17/14 for processing, if given the go ahead by the Proposal Review Committee.
Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
For general inquiries, or to request a listing of a limited submission opportunity that should be but is not already listed, please email us at email@example.com.
