SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2018, page 35665 (83 FR 35665) and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health, may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

In compliance with Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below.

Proposed Collection: Intramural Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (iCURE) Application, 0925-XXXX, Exp., Date XX/XXXX, EXISTING COLLECTION IN USE WITHOUT OMB NUMBER, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The new Intramural Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (iCURE) program supports mentored research experiences for qualified post-baccalaureate (including post masters) individuals, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in the multidisciplinary National Cancer Institute (NCI) intramural research environment. This information collection request are applications and a reference letter to help evaluate the merits of the candidates and their potential match for the iCURE program. iCURE is an extension of the highly successful NCI Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities' (CRCHD) Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) program which helps support the career progress of its scholars toward research independence, as well as fosters and sustains diversity in the biomedical research pipeline. Like the CURE program, iCURE strongly encourages the participation of individuals from underrepresented populations and is aligned with NCI's interest in diversity. The benefit of collecting this information is to enable the selection of the best matching candidates for the iCURE program. The iCURE program aims to, 1. Enhance the diversity of the NCI Intramural Research Program (IRP), and 2. Promote the career progress of the iCURE scholars in cancer research.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated burden hours are 305.Start Printed Page 51966
