We’re offering administrative supplements to provide summer research experiences for undergraduate students. The research experiences can be conducted remotely or in person, depending on the institutional regulations. These supplements are open to all NIGMS-funded investigators with active R01, R35, and R37 awards, including those in their final year of funding. We’ll accept requests under PA-20-272, Administrative Supplements to Existing NIH Grants and Cooperative Agreements (Parent Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional).
NIGMS will support students at any stage of their undergraduate career. Students may be U.S. or non-U.S. citizens. We encourage principal investigators to select students who otherwise would not have access to research experiences to participate in this program. Only one request per principal investigator will be considered.
The deadline for these supplement applications is April 15, 2021, and the awards will provide funds for students during this upcoming summer.
Please consult NOT-GM-21-028 for detailed instructions on the application process.
Note that investigators with active R15 awards cannot receive supplemental funds for this program. This is because direct costs on R15 awards are limited to $300,000 over the entire project period and most of the NIGMS R15 awards are at or close to this limit.
If you have any questions about these supplements, please contact your program officer.
