Fostering diversity by addressing underrepresentation in the scientific research workforce is a key component of the NIH strategy to identify, develop, and support future scientists and research personnel. Therefore, NIH offers opportunities for eligible PI/PDs with active grants to apply for supplemental funds to support and enhance the research careers of individuals from groups underrepresented in the health research workforce.
