Diversity Supplements

NIH Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supplement) 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. Much less competitive than peer-reviewed grant funding mechanisms and can provide an excellent entry point for a research career.
