The NCI invites NCI-Supported Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service

Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) Program by submitting 
administrative supplements for placing promising, qualified underrepresented 
minority predoctoral students and postdoctoral trainees in cancer research 
settings.

belongs to a particular ethnic and racial group that has been determined by 
the grantee institution to be underrepresented in cancer-related biomedical, 
behavioral, clinical or social science research.  Underrepresented 
individuals are not limited to racial and ethnic minorities but can also 
include individuals, as selected by the institution, as underrepresented in 
cancer research, e.g., first generation college graduates, the economically 
diasadvantaged, etc."
