Funding Opportunity:  Pediatric and Reproductive Environmental Health Scholars (PREHS) program

September 25, 2020

NIEHS is happy to announce a new funding opportunity titled, “The Pediatric and Reproductive Environmental Health Scholars (PREHS)” program to create a strong network of healthcare professionals who possess the skills and knowledge to address the complexities of pediatric and reproductive environmental health. The PREHS program will introduce pediatric healthcare providers, obstetricians/gynecologists, and other interested healthcare professionals to issues in environmental health. The program will provide research experiences that bridges clinical practice in environmental health, community-level engagement, and teaching.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) does not allow appointed Scholars to lead an independent clinical trial but does allow them to obtain research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.

The PREHS program is designed to support 3 scholar positions per year at each of the awarded sites. Appointments may be 2-3 years in duration, consisting of consecutive 12-month terms. Scholars are generally expected to hold junior faculty appointments. However, scholars may be appointed to the K12 program in the final research year of subspecialty fellowship training if the fellowship is designed to provide an in-depth research experience like this K12 program.
