Research and Mentoring for Postbaccalaureates in Biological Sciences (RaMP)

The Research and Mentoring for Postbaccalaureates (RaMP) in Biological Sciences program invites the submission of proposals to establish networks to support full-time research, mentoring, and training for recent college graduates who have had few or no research or training opportunities during college in research fields typically supported by the Directorate of Biological Sciences. Individuals from groups underrepresented in STEM, first generation college students, and students at under-resourced institutions frequently have limited opportunities to participate in the undergraduate research experiences that are necessary to be competitive for graduate programs or other STEM career pathways. This program will provide research experiences through RaMP networks.

The full proposal deadline is January 20, 2022.

Proposals submitted under this solicitation should focus on research-based inquiry projects that include analytical and technical training and professional development opportunities.

If you would like further information about this solicitation, please visit NSF 22-506. You can also learn more about RaMP on BIO Buzz, the blog of NSF’s Office of the Assistant Director for Biological Sciences.

Details of this funding opportunity will be featured, along with the new Building Research Capacity of New Faculty in Biology (BRC-BIO) program opportunity, in the upcoming IOS Virtual Office Hour on November 18, at 1pm ET.
