How Can Build Help Me

Project PATHWAYS Activities for Faculty

The goal of Xavier’s NIH BUILD grant is to prepare our students for careers in biomedical research, broadly defined.
There are a number of ways that faculty can be involved:
1. Funding for course assessment and improvement/development.
2. Funding for junior faculty pilot research projects
3. Funding to mentor a NIH BUILD Scholar or BUILD Technician

If you are a faculty member, you can apply for course improvement mini-grants, pilot project research grants, and to become a BUILD Program Mentor. Mentors receive both travel and supply funds as well as release time that can be used during the academic year and/or summer months. For a list of all the faculty opportunities and BUILD Scholar Mentor requirements, please visit the Project PATHWAYS Activities for Faculty page.
