Diversity Supplement Webinar

Date / Time

June 21, 2022

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join the upcoming webinar hosted by the University of Illinois Cancer Center to promote the funding mechanism that supports diversity in the scientific research workforce and provides additional funding for NIH grants. There are numerous eligible NIH-funded parent grants but very few awarded diversity supplements. Based on the original project’s scope, the supplement awards fund students’ research training from high school to faculty levels. It encourages applications for trainees underrepresented (e.g., individuals from racial and ethnic groups, disabilities, and disadvantaged backgrounds) in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences. Topics covered are diversity supplement application components, criteria, tips, and perspectives of successfully awarded faculty.
