We’re offering another round of administrative supplements to provide summer research experiences for undergraduate students. 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). The research experiences can be conducted remotely or in person, depending on the institutional policies of each applicant.
NIGMS will support students at any stage of their undergraduate career. Students may be U.S. or non-U.S. citizens and may be affiliated with either the applicant institution or another academic institution. We encourage principal investigators to select students who otherwise would not have access to research experiences to participate in this program. Only one student per NIGMS-funded award will be considered for funding.
This supplement is intended for undergraduate research. Support of individuals at other training stages may be possible through the NIGMS Diversity Supplement Program.
The deadline for these supplement applications is March 15, and the awards will provide funds for students during this upcoming summer.
Please consult NOT-GM-22-009 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 the NIGMS program officer assigned to the parent grant of the supplement request.
