Minority Serving Institutions Research Scientist Training Program

The VA Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) Research Scientist Training Program was created to increase the number of underrepresented minority scientists participating in VA research. The centerpiece of this program is an MSI focused Career Development Award (CDA-2 mechanism) to support early career scientists who are affiliated with MSIs in collaboration with their local VA medical centers. In addition to these research training awards, the program will periodically coordinate local and national networking meetings between MSI faculty members and researchers and administrators at nearby VA medical centers to facilitate informal interpersonal interactions that can lead to meaningful research collaborations for the benefit of Veterans. MSI Career Development awardees will be selected through a peer-review process coordinated by each service within the VA Office of Research and Development. If you would like further information, please speak directly the service which your research aligns too.
