The NIH provides funding (referred as Diversity Supplements) to attract trainees and faculty from underrepresented groups to research careers. These diversity supplements:
- Work within the scope of original NIH-supported grant project. The Principal Investigator must hold NIH research grants (R01, P01, etc.) with remaining support, usually two years or more.
- Support Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scholars / Fellows as well as other career stages from underrepresented groups (see more information below and PA-20-222)
- Receive administrative review instead of peer review
- Provide salary support for named candidates that are citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or to individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (i.e., in possession of a Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551)
Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity (NOT-OD-20-031) summarizes populations underrepresented in the scientific workforce. Any individuals from groups demonstrated to be underrepresented from groups that are not described should contact relevant program officers to determine eligibility.
