  • PD(s)/PI(s) are strongly encouraged to contact the NIDDK Financial or Grants Management Contact for the Institute-specific funding salary/stipend allowances for postdoctoral 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 the Notice to the Guide NOT-OD-15-095 (available at:
    http://www.grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-095.html), the NIDDK reserves the right to administratively withdraw incomplete applications.
