Reminder: NIH Encourages Applications Supporting Individuals From Underrepresented Ethnic and Racial Groups as Well as Individuals With Disabilities


In this notice, NIH reaffirms its commitment to supporting a sustainable and diverse biomedical research workforce. Diversity within the NIH-supported scientific workforce fosters innovation, enhances global competitiveness, improves the quality of research and research outcomes. As we state in our parent announcements (for example, PA-20-185– NIH Research Project Grant [Parent R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed]), individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to work with their organizations to apply for NIH support.

For more on NIH’s interest in diversity and supplement programs, see our blog post and podcast episode.
