The National Institutes of Health has announced upcoming changes to the NIH Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program. NIH is making these changes to focus AREA support on grants to undergraduate‐focused institutions that do not receive substantial funding from NIH, rather than all institutions with less than $6 million of NIH support. The current AREA Parent Announcement, PA‐18‐504, will expire after the January 7, 2019, AIDS due date and will not be reissued. Future funding opportunity announcements (FOA) for the AREA program will focus on supporting grants to undergraduate‐focused institutions. NIH will continue to provide R15 research enhancement opportunities for health professional and graduate schools under separate announcements. A complete copy of the NIH announcement on the AREA program is more fully detailed at:
