Description: Purpose. This FOA issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health, encourages research grant R03 applications from institutions/ organizations that are relevant to the understanding of the process(es) and mechanisms underlying drug abuse and addiction. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources.Preliminary data are not required for an R03. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism and runs in parallel with FOAs of identical scientific scope, PA-10-269, that encourages applications under the R21 mechanism, and PA-10-268 that encourages applications under the R01 mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the R03 is a small grant mechanism, it is anticipated that the nature and scope of the proposed research will be limited. The number of awards will depend upon the quality and alignment with NIDAs programmatic priorities of the applications received. Budget and Project Period.Budgets for direct costs of up to $50,000 per year and a project duration of up to two years may be requested for a maximum of $100,000 direct costs over a two-year project period.
