VA-ORD Historical Black College and University Research Scientist Training Program Award

In support of Presidential Executive Order 13256, which calls on all federal agencies to help strengthen the capacity of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to increase opportunities for such minority-serving institutions to participate in and benefit from Federal programs, the VA Office of Research and Development (VA-ORD) has established the HBCU Research Scientist Training Program (HBCU-RSTP). The primary goals of this program are 1) to increase the number of individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who pursue career paths in biomedical, clinical, rehabilitation and health services research at VA Medical Centers, and 2) to partner with minority serving institutions, such as HBCUs, that are committed to increasing diversity within the scientific workforce through their education and training of clinicians and non-clinician scientists who represent a wide range of backgrounds and experiences in order to help advance health care for Veteran!
