Supplements to Promote Diversity in Biomedical, Behavioral, Clinical and Social Science Research Careers
The Program of Research Supplements is intended to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting and recruiting students (from the high school through the predoctoral degree level), postdoctorates, and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in science. Such candidates include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Supplement Programs for Special Populations
Supplement programs are used to offer laboratory experience to a wide array of individuals including high school students, undergraduate students in health-related sciences, underrepresented minorities, persons with disabilities, scientists re-entering the work force after taking time off for family responsibilities, etc. Individuals may receive support under these programs on only one grant at any time, but may be supported by more than one grant during their research careers.
Per the instructions provided in the FOAs listed above, supplement applications may be submitted electronically to Grants.gov. Applications may also be submitted using the PHS 398 form to the following email address: AdminSupplements@niehs.nih.gov.
*Specific dates will be posted for each round.
