PRIDE Application Process

 Eligibility Requirements

Individuals from groups listed in NOT-OD-20-031 are highly encouraged to submit applications.

To be eligible to participate in a PRIDE Institute Training Program, you must:

  • Be a research-oriented junior-level faculty member holding a doctoral degree, such as a PhD, MD, DO, DVM or transitioning post-doctorate trainee
    • If you have been awarded grants such as an R01 you will not be considered junior-level faculty. You may have been awarded these grants and still be considered junior.  
  • Be a Citizen or Permanent Resident of the United States
  • Have a research focus that is centered on heart, lung, blood, or sleep disorders; health disparities relevant to heart, lung, blood, or sleep disorders; or relevant research methodologies and approaches specific to these areas including implementation science. 
  • Career tracking for up to ten years after training is completed 
  • Has not attended a previous PRIDE/SIPID cohort 

Transitioning means that you have or will have received a formal faculty appointment by the time the Summer Institute Program convenes and no longer be supported on a training grant.
