PA-20-272 - Administrative Supplements to Existing NIH Grants and Cooperative Agreements (Parent Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional)
National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces the availability of funds for Administrative Supplements to institutions with NIGMS institutional training (T32, T34), certain research education (R25, see below), or institutional career development (K12) awards. Navigating the biomedical research training pathway can seem overwhelming and lead to stress, anxiety and self-doubt. The funds will support the development and implementation of evidence-informed curricular or training activities to provide trainees and participating faculty with the knowledge and skills to enhance wellness and resiliency in the training environment. Together with promoting safe and inclusive environments, these activities should enhance the ability of individuals to be successful in the biomedical research workforce. Applicants are encouraged to consult the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education for resources to promote wellness and resiliency. Plans for sustainability beyond the funding period should be included in the supplement application. Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss potential requests with their NIGMS Program Officer before submitting the supplement request.
Supplement awardees are expected to present an overview of the funded activities, the outcomes, and the progress in incorporating the activities into the ongoing program(s) at the meeting organized for Program Directors/Principal Investigators of NIGMS Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity programs.
Applicants must have an NIGMS-funded institutional training (T32, T34), institutional career development (K12), or certain research education (R25, see below) program award. Only R25 awards in the following programs (and associated funding opportunity announcements) are eligible for these supplements:
The parent award must be active when the supplemental application is submitted (e.g., within the originally reviewed and approved project period and may not be in a No-Cost Extension (NCE). Parent awards of applications submitted for the 2022 due date must have a project end date of May 31, 2023 or later. Parent awards of applications submitted for the 2023 due date must have a project end date of May 31, 2024 or later.
An applicant institution (normally identified by having a unique entity identifier such as DUNS number or NIH Institutional Profile File - IPF) may submit only one application in this topic area. For institutions with two or more NIGMS grants, it is expected that the Program Directors/Principal Investigators will cooperate to develop curricula and/or activities that are broadly applicable to individuals at their institution and that a single supplement request will be submitted through one of the eligible NIGMS awards.
