Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research

Diversity supplements are additional NIH funds awarded to an existing parent grant providing full salary (plus expenses for supplies/travel) to support individuals from historically marginalized groups.  The IDDRC is committed to increasing diversity among its centers and would like to encourage its members to apply for this awarding mechanism.  Even if you do not have a current active grant (or yours is ineligible), we can still apply using the IDDRC P50 as the parent grant.  Eligible candidates include those from underrepresented ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

Our goal is to have at least one application in the first year and a funded supplement every year afterwards (but we feel we can do better than this!).  To help with this goal, Dr. Noguchi has created a presentation outlining candidate eligibility, supplement requirements, and how to apply.  If you, or someone you know, might be interested in applying please contact us.  We can: 1) answer any questions, 2) provide you with previous successful applications, and 3) help connect candidates and PIs with each other.  We would also like to hear from you if you plan on applying or already have a Diversity supplement so we can track progress. 

If you have any questions or would like to notify us of an application please contact Dr. Noguchi:
