The purpose of the NIMH Administrative Supplement Providing Research Experiences for Physicians and Medical Students from Diverse Backgrounds (PA-15-069 ) is to support advanced research experiences for outstanding early career physicians and medical students from underrepresented backgrounds. This program aims to increase the opportunities available for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds working in the mental health research workforce by recruiting and supporting outstanding physician-scientists and medical students. The proposed research experience must be an integral part of the approved research of the parent grant and must have the potential to contribute significantly to the candidate's research career.
Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project. Complete submission instructions can be found in the FOA . All applicants are encouraged to discuss potential requests with the NIMH prior to submission.
