Grants and Funding: Extramural Programs (EP)

Research Supplements to Promote Reentry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers (Admin Supp)

http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-15-321.html

Purpose

The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announce the continuation of the program for administrative supplements to research grants to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances. The purpose of these supplements is to encourage such individuals to re-enter research careers within the missions of all the program areas of NIH. This program will provide administrative supplements to existing NIH research grants for the purpose of supporting full-time or part-time research by these individuals to update their existing research skills and knowledge, while contributing to the scope of the original project. It is anticipated that at the completion of the supplement, the reentry scientist will be in a position to apply for a career development (K) award, a research award (R), or some other form of research support.

The grantee institution must submit the application for supplemental funds directly to the awarding component that supports the parent grant. The application must not be submitted to the NIH Center for Scientific Review. This program expires September 30, 2018 unless reissued.

NLM's participation is confined to research grants for which it is the primary funding agency. Grantees must contact NLM before submitting an application for this supplement opportunity.
