Description: Purpose. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), invites applications to support new research on the treatment of young adults (18-25 years of age) with alcohol use disorders. Compared to all other age groups, the prevalence of periodic heavy or high-risk drinking is greatest among young adults aged 18 to 25. Alcohol use disorders, including alcohol dependence, also peak during this critical period during which profound developmental changes occur. Despite having the highest prevalence of drinking, interventions for this group have been understudied. Gaps exist in understanding how to effectively engage this group in treatment, which treatments are the most effective, and how to maintain treatment gains in the longer term after treatment. 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. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PAS-10-246, that encourages applications under the R01 mechanisms and PAS-10-248 that encourages applications under the R21 mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. NIAAA has set aside $1.5 million in total cost for fiscal year 2011, and expects that a total of up to six awards will be made for this and companions FOAs. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration and costs of the applications received.
