Upcoming Deadline for NCI Diversity Supplement

For departments who hold a NCI award, this serves as a friendly reminder that the current application cycle for National Cancer Institute Diversity Supplements ends this Saturday, December 1. NCI Diversity Supplements support the research training of students, post-baccalaureate and post-Masters individuals, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty investigators, especially those individuals from groups identified in NIH’s Notice of Interest in Diversity (NOT-OD-18-210). The intent of a diversity supplement is to contribute to, expand, or extend the aims of a parent grant; as such, each request for a diversity supplement must be attached to a parent project. Furthermore, the relevance of the supplement request to the parent project must be explicitly described within the supplement application. For more information, please visit the extensive guidelines published on the NIH website here and here, or contact your OSP specialist.
