NIDCD Specific Information:

http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/funding/types/pages/minority_disability.aspx

  • The institution/university of principal investigator (PI) determines, justifies and certifies the eligibility of the candidate based on  Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity  (/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-20-031.html).
  • The PI of the NIDCD-funded award prepares the supplement application with input from the candidate.
  • Typically, supplements are provided for one year, with a strong justification for a second year.
  • The application must clearly describe the need for additional mentored research training.
  • The research strategy section in the application must include the following subheadings:
    • Career development plan: The PI should include details of specific activities and milestones to be accomplished during the supplement duration.  For predoctoral fellows, postdoctoral fellows, and medical students, a plan to transition to NIH mainstream research training and/or research funding should be provided.
    • Mentoring research plan: The PI should describe the specific activities planned for the candidate during the supplement period as well as a description his or her previous training and mentoring experience.
  • For high school, undergraduate, postbaccalaureate (includes baccalaureate holders, master’s students, and master’s holders), and predoctoral students (includes students accepted and currently enrolled in graduate programs such as Ph.D, Au.D. and medical students), and postdoctoral fellows, the application should include a biosketch for the candidate using the NIH fellowship biosketch format (/grants/forms/biosketch.htm).
  • The parent award must have an active budget that is at least equivalent to the duration of the requested supplement and should not be in (or go into) a no-cost extension.
  • Typically, NIDCD allows 1 supplement per parent award to support 1 candidate. Possible exceptions will be considered for exceptional PIs and candidates with a strong justification and with support from the program official assigned to the parent award.
  • Supplements are limited to candidates who are citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or to candidates who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (i.e., in possession of a Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551).
  • Candidates supported on a research award (like an R01) may not be transferred to a supplement to increase the availability of funds to the parent award for other uses.
  • Candidates may be temporarily supported by the parent award while the application is under reviewed.
  • Discussions of the supplement request with the program officer assigned to the parent award are highly encouraged to make sure that the proposed project falls within the scope of the parent award.
  • NIDCD accepts applications on a rolling basis.
  • The requested start date should not be the application submission date. Please allow at least 6 weeks between submission and start date for processing and review of the application.
  • Salary and/or effort can only be requested for the Candidate. Any other staff must be supported by the parent award or in-kind.

  • PD(s)/PI(s) are strongly encouraged to contact the NIDDK Financial or Grants Management Contact for the Institute-specific funding salary allowances for postdoctoral candidates and Investigators Developing Independent Research Careers.
  • The NIDDK limits support for candidates at all career levels to two years.
  • The NIDDK will allow up to two supplements under a parent grant, under exceptional circumstances, when strongly justified. Each candidate will require a separate application, and acceptance of a second application to the same parent grant requires pre-approval by the NIDDK Scientific Contact.
  • The NIDDK does not accept Research Supplement applications to R15, SC1, or SC2 awards.
  • The NIDDK does NOT participate in the "Short-term Investigator Research Supplement."
  • Because this program is not intended to provide an alternative or additional means of supporting individuals who receive support from PHS funding mechanisms, diversity candidates may not be transferred to supplemental support prior to the completion of their appointed period of their current PHS support. In addition, individuals may not be transferred to a supplement from a parent PHS award to increase the availability of funds to the parent grant for other uses.
  • As per NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-15-095 (available at:
    /grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-095.html), the NIDDK reserves the right to administratively withdraw incomplete applications.

  • Diversity supplements are accepted on a rolling basis and will  be reviewed during our review period, October-June. Applications received after  May 9th will be processed and considered for funding in the next fiscal year  (October 1st). 
  • In most cases, the diversity supplement start date will be the same as the parent grant fiscal year start date.
  • Diversity supplements for center grants that support research subprojects (e.g., U54, P50) must fall within the scope of one or more active subprojects. 
  • At the time of the application, the parent grant should have at least 1 year of funding remaining for post-baccalaureate candidates/trainees, a minimum of 2 years of funding remaining for pre-doctoral candidates/trainees or 18 months of funding remaining for post-doctoral or early career investigator level candidates/trainees.
  • Prospective candidates who are supported by an institutional Kirschstein-NRSA may not be transferred to supplemental support prior to the completion of their appointed period of their current PHS support. If the candidate is on a NIH-funded T32 at your current intuition, they cannot start a diversity supplement until the end date the T32 appointment. They can apply for a diversity supplement in advance, but cannot terminate the T32 appointment early to start the supplement.
  • Applicants are also encouraged to send an e-mail to the NIDA scientific contact alerting them to the submission of the application.
  • It takes approximately ten weeks from receipt of the application in NIDA’s Office of Diversity and Health Disparities until a funding decision is made therefore it is critical to apply early.
