Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research for Undergraduate Students (NIAID)

Diversity supplements support scientists who are members of an underrepresented group at the following levels: high school, undergraduate, medical, graduate, postdoctoral, and junior faculty.

Sponsor: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease; NIH

These grant supplements provide salary and other expenses for students, postdocs, and faculty. Applications may be received at any time and are reviewed approximately every eight weeks. Contact Raushanah Newman for information on review cycles. Submit applications for a high school or undergraduate student for summer work as early in the spring as possible, and no later than April 15. If you are seeking an award before the end of a fiscal year — September 30 — we must receive your application no later than June 30. Applications received after this date will be considered for funding in the next fiscal year. We do not make awards during continuing resolutions.

PIs on the following grant types are eligible: R01, R10, R18, R22, R24, R35, R37, R43, R44, R41, R42, P01, P20, P30, P40, P41, P50, P51, P60, U01, U10, U19, U41, U42, U54, or S06. The "parent" grant should have at least two years of support remaining. Students who are supported on research or training grants are not eligible. Non-U.S. citizens must have permanent residency status ("green card") at time of award. People on temporary or student visas are not eligible.

How to Apply

The PI for the parent grant applies, choosing to either submit a paper application or E-mail PDF files of scanned documents. NIAID encourages -- but does not require -- using PDFs. Visit the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease Web site for specific application requirements.
