TEAM to Pilot Test Use of Training Champions at Minority-Serving Institutions

TEAM’s purpose is to pilot test the use of Training Champions (TCs) at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to provide education and career development navigation for diverse scholars. The program is designed to develop the skills and competencies for predoctoral, postdoctoral, and/or Early Stage Investigators to successfully compete for independent grant funding.

The Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities is excited to announce the issuance of a funding opportunity to solicit applications for the Transformative Educational Advancement and Mentoring Network (TEAM). We encourage you to share this opportunity with your grantees and networks.

Applications should be designed to provide scholars with the educational resources and tools needed to navigate the NIH funding process, from identifying appropriate grant mechanisms through the application process and beyond. Principal Investigators and MSI support faculty will also be expected to adapt or leverage culturally tailored educational activities, short courses, and resources that enhance subject matter expertise and professional career development. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on:

  • Courses for Skills Development: Applicants should describe in detail the courses and training resources for skills development that will be integrated within institutions. Applicants should also highlight how this program will integrate with and enhance the institution's existing resources and expertise in cancer and cancer health disparities research, grantsmanship, and scholars’ professional career development.
  • Mentoring Activities: Researchers from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups, are encouraged to participate as mentors in the TEAM program. Mentors should have advanced degrees, multifaceted research expertise, and experience in cancer and cancer health disparities, scientific writing, grantsmanship, and other topics relevant to the applicant’s proposal.

Biden Administration Moves to Formalize DACA and Shield It From Legal Challenges

The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday issued a final rule to transform the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy for more than 600,000 so-called Dreamers into a federal regulation. The rule, effective on October 31, will make the Obama-era policy, which has been governed by a 2012 memo for a decade, more difficult to reverse in court. Many Dreamers, people brought to the United States illegally as children, are students, and DACA has protected them from deportation. (CBS News, The Chronicle)
