What is a diversity supplement?
NIH Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supplement) PA-20-222 provides additional funds to principal investigators to recruit eligible investigators from underrepresented groups to engage in research experiences in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences.
- Provides funding for trainees and faculty to work on an existing NIH-funded project with 2 award years or more left.
- Much less competitive than peer-reviewed grant funding mechanisms and can provide an excellent entry point for a research career.
- Goal: to enhance the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting students, post doctorates, and eligible faculty investigators from historically marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be nationally underrepresented in health-related research.
