NIGMS Administrative Supplements to Support Undergraduate Summer Research


We’re offering another round of administrative supplements to provide summer research experiences to undergraduate students. The research experiences can be conducted remotely or in person, depending on the institutional regulations of the applicant organization. The 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.

NIGMS will support students at any stage of their undergraduate careers. Students must be enrolled as undergraduates at the time of application submission and may be U.S. or non-U.S. citizens. Students may be affiliated with either the applicant institution or another academic institution. We encourage principal investigators to select students for this program who otherwise wouldn’t have access to research experiences. We’ll consider only one student per NIGMS award for funding. 

This supplement is intended for undergraduate research, but support of individuals at other training stages may be possible through the NIGMS Diversity Supplement Program.

The deadline for 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. The reason is that 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 R01, R35, or R37 program officer.
