RESEARCH SUPPLEMENTS FOR UNDERREPRESENTED MINORITIES

NIH GUIDE, Volume 26, Number 37, November 7, 1997

P.T.

National Institutes of Health

BACKGROUND

During 1987 and 1988, the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and
the Advisory Committee to the Director (ACD) held a series of regional meetings
throughout the United States.  At these meetings, testimony was presented by
concerned individuals and organizations regarding the underrepresentation of
minorities in biomedical and behavioral research.  Although the NIH currently
provides opportunities for minorities through the traditional research grant
programs and through special initiatives supported by various components of the
NIH, the testimony indicated that efforts of the NIH should be increased.  In
addition, the NIH recognizes the need to increase the number of underrepresented
minority scientists participating in biomedical and behavioral research.

In response to these concerns, the NIH is emphasizing the use of administrative
supplements to attract underrepresented minorities into biomedical and behavioral
research.  The mechanisms described in this announcement have been endorsed by
all the awarding components of the NIH and are designed to provide support for
research experiences at grantee institutions for minorities throughout the
continuum from high school to the faculty level.

The NIH hereby notifies all Principal Investigators holding NIH research grants
that funds are available for administrative supplements to existing grants for
the support and recruitment of underrepresented minority investigators and
students.  The aim of these supplements is to attract and encourage minority
individuals to enter and pursue biomedical and behavioral research careers in
areas within the missions of all the awarding components of the NIH by providing
supplemental funds to certain ongoing research grants (see the  ELIGIBILITY
section under GENERAL PROVISIONS).

For the purpose of this announcement, underrepresented minority students and
investigators are defined as individuals belonging to a particular ethnic or
racial group that has been determined by the grantee institution to be
underrepresented in biomedical or behavioral research.  Awards will be limited
to citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or to individuals who
have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., in possession of an
Alien Registration Receipt Card) at the time of application.  In awarding
supplements, the NIH will give priority to projects involving African Americans
(Black), Hispanic Americans, Native Americans and Alaskan Natives, and Pacific
Islanders or other ethnic or racial group members who have been found to be
underrepresented in biomedical or behavioral research nationally.  Before
submitting an application for a research supplement, applicants are encouraged
to call their program administrator at the NIH to discuss any aspects of this
program that need clarification.

The NIH anticipates that by providing research opportunities for underrepresented
minorities at the career levels listed below, the number of minorities entering
and remaining in biomedical research careers will increase.

o  MINORITY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.  This program will support minority high school
students who have expressed an interest in biomedical or behavioral sciences.

o  MINORITY UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS.  This program will support minority
undergraduate students who have demonstrated an interest in biomedical or
behavioral sciences and wish to pursue graduate level training in these areas.

o  MINORITY GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS.  This program will provide support to
assist minority predoctoral students who wish to develop research capabilities
in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

o  MINORITY INDIVIDUALS IN POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING.  This program will provide
support for minority individuals who wish to participate as postdoctoral
researchers in ongoing research projects in preparation for independent careers
in biomedical or behavioral research.

o  MINORITY INVESTIGATORS.  This program will provide short- and long-term
opportunities for minority staff and faculty who wish to participate in ongoing
research projects while further developing their own independent research
potential.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

In all cases, the proposed research experience must be an integral part of the
approved ongoing research of the parent grant.  As part of this research
experience, the minority individual must be given the opportunity to interact
with individuals on the parent grant, to contribute intellectually to the
research, and to enhance her/his research skills and knowledge regarding the
particular area of biomedical science.  Furthermore, the Principal Investigator
must demonstrate a willingness and understanding that the purpose of the award
is to enhance the research capability of the minority student or faculty member
and that the research experience is intended to provide opportunities for
minority individuals to develop as independent, competitive research
investigators.  Supplemental awards will be consistent with the goal of
strengthening the existing research program and with the overall programmatic
balance and priorities of the funding component of the NIH.  Awards will be made
according to the policies and provisions stated in this announcement or as
further specified by the NIH component funding the parent grant.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the NIH institute staff listed under
INQUIRIES prior to submission to obtain specific information about preparing and
submitting an application.  It is also recognized that individual circumstances
vary, and for unusual situations, NIH program administrators should be consulted
for a determination of eligibility.

ELIGIBILITY

Principal Investigators at domestic institutions who hold an active R01, R10,
R18, R22, R24, R35, R37, P01, P20, P30, P40, P41, P50, P51, P60, U01, U10, U19,
U41, or U42 grant are generally eligible to submit a request for an
administrative supplement to the awarding component of the parent grant for any
of the supplemental programs offered here. Principal Investigators holding an
active First Independent Research Support and Transition (FIRST) Award (R29), 
an Academic Research Enhancement Award (R15), an Exploratory/Developmental Grant
(R21) or a Small Grant Award (R03) also may apply for a supplement under this
program. Grantees with support from these mechanisms MUST check with the
appropriate awarding component before an application for a supplement is
submitted. An R29 awardee may apply only when the minority candidate is a high
school, undergraduate, or graduate student.  Awardees of the R03, R15, and R21
grants may apply only when the minority candidate is a high school or an
undergraduate student.  However, exceptions to these rules may be made. 
Applicants should check with their awarding component.  Minority supplements to
the grant mechanisms such as the R29,  R15, or the R03 may provide support above
the established dollar limits.  The P20, P30, and P60 award mechanisms are
eligible for supplements only when they contain research components.

In all cases, the parent grant must have support remaining for a reasonable
period at the time of a supplemental award (usually two years or more). The
purpose of the application is to request support for an underrepresented minority
high school student, undergraduate student, graduate research assistant,
individual in postdoctoral training, or a staff or faculty member to participate
in an ongoing research project. Specific eligibility requirements relative to
each type of award are set forth in the description of the individual supplement
programs (below).

Usually, each parent grant may support only one minority supplement.  Appointment
of more than one individual to a single grant depends on the nature of the parent
grant, the circumstances of the request, and the program balance of the NIH
awarding component.  Minority individuals may receive support from only one of
these supplement programs at a time, but may be supported by more than one
minority supplement during the development of their research careers.  Support
under the supplement programs is not transferable to another individual or
transportable to another institution.

The minority supplement programs have been designed to attract underrepresented
minority individuals into research careers and are not intended to provide an
alternative or additional means of supporting minority individuals who already
receive support from a research grant or a research training grant or any other
DHHS funding mechanism.  Minority graduate students or individuals in
postdoctoral training who are supported by a National Research Service Award
(NRSA) Institutional research training grant may not be transferred to
supplemental support prior to the completion of their appointed period of
training.  Individuals may not be transferred to a minority supplement to
increase the availability of funds to the parent grant for any other uses.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

A request for a supplement may be submitted at any time.  In making requests, the
grantee institution, on behalf of the Principal Investigator of the parent grant
and in cooperation with the minority individual, must submit the request for
supplemental funds directly to the awarding component that supports the parent
grant.  The request should not be submitted to the NIH Center for Scientific
Review.  Principal Investigators are encouraged to obtain the address for
submission from the NIH program administrator on the parent grant.

The request for a supplemental award must include the following:

1.  A completed face page (with appropriate signatures) from Grant Application
Form PHS 398.  Include the title and grant number of the parent grant on line 1
and the type of supplement being requested on line 2.

2.  A brief three to four page description, prepared by the Principal
Investigator of the parent grant, that includes:

a.  A summary or abstract of the funded grant or project.

b.  A description of the research experience proposed for the minority
individual.

c.  A description of how the research experience will expand and foster the
independent research capabilities of the minority individual, and how the
proposed experience relates to the specific research goals and objectives of the
parent grant.

3.  A signed statement from the minority individual outlining her/his research
objectives and career goals.

4.  A biographical sketch of the minority individual that includes evidence of
scientific achievement or interest.

5.  Social Security Number of the minority individual.  (The PHS uses the Social
Security Number for the purpose of accurate identification, referral, and review
of applications and for efficient management of PHS grant programs.  Although
provision of the Social Security Number is voluntary, it will facilitate the
processing of applications for supplements.)

6.  A signed statement from the Principal Investigator establishing the
eligibility of the minority individual for support under this program including
information on ethnicity, citizenship, and a description of any previous PHS
research grant support the minority individual has received.

7.  A proposed budget entered on budget pages from Grant Application Form PHS
398, related to the percent effort (where appropriate) for the research
experience of the minority individual during the first and future years.  If the
initial budget period requested is less than 12 months, the budget must be
prorated accordingly.

8.  Documentation, if applicable, that the proposed research experience was
approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) or human
subjects Institutional Review Board (IRB) of the grantee institution must be
provided.  Adherence to the NIH policy for including women and minorities in
clinical studies must also be insured if additional human subjects' involvement
is planned for the supplement component.

9.  A copy of the most recent official transcript if the minority candidate is
a high school, undergraduate, or graduate student.

10.  If the minority individual is a student at another institution, the
application must include an appropriately signed letter from a responsible
official at the institution of matriculation indicating that participation at the
stated level of effort is approved and will not detract from or interfere with
the students course of studies.

11.  If any of the research is to be conducted at a site other than the grantee
institution, an appropriately signed letter from the institution where the
research is to be conducted must be submitted.  The request must be signed by the
minority individual, the Principal Investigator, and the appropriate
institutional business official.

REVIEW CRITERIA

The staff of the particular awarding component will review requests for
supplements using the following general criteria:

1.  The qualifications of the minority individual including career goals, prior
research training, research potential, and any relevant experience.

2.  Evidence of educational achievement and interest in science, if the minority
candidate is a student.

3.  The plan for the proposed research experience in the supplemental request and
its relationship to the parent grant.

4.  Evidence from the Principal Investigator that the experience will enhance the
research potential, knowledge, and/or skills of the minority individual, and that
adequate mentorship will be provided.

5.  Evidence from the Principal Investigator that the activities of the minority
individual are an integral part of the project.

FUNDING

The decision to fund a supplement will take approximately eight weeks from
receipt of a complete application.  Applicants for summer-only research
appointments must submit early enough to ensure that funding is in place by the
time the summer experience is scheduled to begin.  In most cases, during the
first budget period, funds will be provided as an administrative supplement to
the parent grant.  In subsequent years, continued funding for the supplement is
contingent on continued funding of the parent grant and cannot extend beyond the
current competitive segment of the parent grant and the availability of funds.

Continuation of support for the minority individual in the remaining years of the
competitive segment of the grant will depend upon satisfactory review by the NIH
awarding component of progress for both the parent grant and the supplemental
project, the research proposed for the next budget period, and the
appropriateness of the proposed budget  for the proposed effort.

In non-competing continuation applications, the progress report and budget for
the minority supplement must be clearly delineated from the progress report and
budget for the parent grant.  The progress report must include information about
the research activities supported by the supplement even if support for future
years is not requested.

In future competing applications, funds for continuation of support of the
minority individual will depend on the successful renewal of the parent grant and
will be handled as follows:

o  For minority students who have not yet completed their research experience,
funds for the continuation of support must be requested as a research supplement
to ensure continued tracking of the individual supported.  The request for
continued support should not be included in the competing renewal, but instead,
should be prepared as a letter with information on research progress and
accomplishments of the minority individual.  The request must be addressed to the
program administrator of the parent grant and must be submitted promptly in
anticipation of a renewal award to avoid an interruption of support.  Support to
individual students by this mechanism will be limited to five years.  Additional
time may be considered, but must be well justified.

o  Funds for the continuation of support for a minority postdoctoral fellow or
a minority investigator must be requested by name in the parent grant application
at the time of renewal and may not be requested as a research supplement. 
Minority postdoctoral fellows and investigators are expected to be fully
integrated in the research laboratory when considered for continuation of
support.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH SUPPLEMENT PROGRAMS

1.  HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

The purpose of this program is to provide minority high school students an
opportunity to obtain a meaningful experience in various aspects of
health-related research to stimulate their interest in careers in biomedical or
behavioral science.

ELIGIBILITY

Any minority high school student who is currently enrolled and in good standing
at her or his high school and is interested in biomedical or behavioral research
is encouraged to participate in this program.

PROVISIONS

This supplement is not to exceed $2,000 per student in direct costs, including
supplies, for a summer experience.  A part-time experience during the regular
school year would be reimbursed at the same hourly rate.  Equipment may not be
purchased using these funds. Students are expected to devote sufficient effort
to the research project and related activities during the period of support to
gain insight into the process of scientific discovery.  Support for at least
three months is encouraged during any one year, which may include a mixture of
full-time summer experience and part-time experience during the school year. 
Principal Investigators are encouraged to seek minority high school students who
will devote at least two years to this program (i.e., equivalent to two
three-month, full-time periods).  Exceptions to the latter will be considered,
depending on the circumstances of the applicant, the parent grant, and the
specific request.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

2.  UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

This supplemental program provides an opportunity for minority undergraduate
students interested in biomedical or behavioral research to participate in a
research project at a research institution during the summer months and/or during
the school year.  This experience will be separate from any requirement of the
regular academic program.

ELIGIBILITY

The student may be affiliated with either the applicant institution or another
academic institution. Any undergraduate minority student interested in biomedical
or behavioral research is encouraged to participate in this program.

PROVISIONS

The salary for an undergraduate student should be consistent with the
institutional salary policies. Institutional rates for undergraduate salary which
exceed $6 per hour must be justified.  An additional amount of $125 per month for
supplies and travel may also be requested. Equipment may not be purchased from
these funds.  Students are expected to devote the equivalent of at least three
months full-time effort to the research project and related activities in any one
year and, in most cases, the period of support for any individual should last at
least two years. Exceptions to these requirements will be considered, depending
on the circumstances of the applicant, the parent grant, and the specific
request.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

3.  GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS

The objective of this program is to reach out to minority graduate students
already in biomedical and behavioral sciences and provide an opportunity to
further develop their research capabilities.  However, students who are supported
on research or training grants may not be supported on research supplements.

ELIGIBILITY

Any minority graduate student who is enrolled in a masters or a doctoral degree
program in biomedical or behavioral sciences is eligible for consideration. 
Students enrolled in a masters degree program in nursing sciences or social work
may also be eligible.  Minority students in medical school or other professional
schools are encouraged to use this program to gain research experience.

PROVISIONS

The NIH will provide salary support in addition to other necessary expenses, such
as supplies and travel, to enable the individual to participate as a graduate
research assistant in funded research projects.  As in the past, the NIH will
continue to consider the compensation for the personal services of graduate
students and other employees rendered to an NIH research project to be allowable
as long as the compensation is reasonable and (1) conforms to the established,
consistently applied salary and wage policies of the institution and (2) reflects
the percentage of time actually devoted to the PHS-funded project.  For graduate
students this compensation may include tuition remission paid as, or in lieu of,
wages provided that the student is in a bona fide employer-employee relationship
with the institution for the work performed, and payment is conditioned
explicitly on the performance of necessary work.  Reasonable compensation for
graduate students must not exceed the amount allowable for a first year
postdoctoral level staff member at the same institution performing comparable
work (see NIH Guide announcement, Vol 25, No.8, March 15, 1996).  Additional
funds up to $3,000 per year may be requested for supplies and travel.  Funds may
not be used to purchase equipment.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

4.  INDIVIDUALS IN POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING

These supplements provide research support to permit minority individuals in the
postdoctoral phase of their training to participate in ongoing research projects
as a means of assisting them in their development into independent biomedical or
behavioral researchers.  Postdoctoral fellows who are supported on research or
training grants may not be supported on research supplements. Toward the end of
the supplement award, candidates should be encouraged to apply for fellowships,
FIRST awards, and other sources of independent support.

ELIGIBILITY

The minority individual in postdoctoral training may be affiliated with either
the applicant institution or some other institution.  Only under extraordinary
circumstances, which must be well justified in the application, would it be
acceptable for the postdoctoral candidate to work with his or her former
predoctoral mentor.

PROVISIONS

The NIH will provide support for salary in addition to other necessary expenses,
such as travel and supplies, to enable the minority individual to participate as
a postdoctoral research assistant or associate on the funded research project. 
The requested salary and fringe benefits must be in accordance with the salary
structure of the grantee institution, consistent with the level of effort, and
may not exceed $40,000 per year.  Amounts requested above current NRSA stipend
levels must be justified.  Additional funds up to $6,000 may be requested for
supplies and travel.  Support may not be used to purchase equipment.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for application procedures, review
criteria, and funding.

5.  INVESTIGATORS DEVELOPING INDEPENDENT RESEARCH CAREERS

These supplements provide either short-or long-term research support for minority
staff or faculty members to enhance their research skills leading to an
independent research career.

o  Short-term Minority Investigator Research Supplement.  This supplement
provides short-term support for minority staff or faculty members to conduct
full-time research for three to five months each year during the summer or
another portion of the academic year, over a maximum period of four years.

o  Long-term Minority Investigator Research Supplement.  This supplement provides
long-term research support for minority staff or faculty members to conduct
research in the biomedical or behavioral sciences.  Support is provided for up
to four years at a minimum of 30 percent effort during each 12-month period.

ELIGIBILITY

The minority investigator may be affiliated with the applicant institution or
some other institution. The investigator must have a doctoral degree, be beyond
the level of a research trainee, and be a member of the staff or faculty with at
least one year of postdoctoral experience.  The minority individuals are still
eligible if they have previously received support from these programs:  the
Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Program, Minority-Research
Infrastructure Support Program (M-RISP), the Minority Access to Research Career
(MARC) Program, Career Opportunities in Research Education and Training (COR),
Small Grants (R03), National Research Service Award (NRSA) predoctoral (F31) and
postdoctoral (F32) fellowships, or the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA)
Program (R15) is also eligible for these supplements.  On the other hand, an
individual who has received previous funding from NIH as an independent Principal
Investigator on a regular research grant (e.g., R01, R29), or as the project
leader on a component of a program project or center grant (e.g., P01, P50, G12),
or as Principal Investigator on an individual research career award (e.g., KO1,
K02, K07, K08, and K12) is not eligible.

PROVISIONS

The salary limit of $50,000 per year in direct cost for the minority investigator
supplemental award has been removed.  The requested salary and fringe benefits
for an investigator must be in accordance with the salary structure of the
grantee institution, consistent with the level of effort.  Additional funds of
up to $10,000 may be requested for supplies and travel.  Equipment may not be
purchased except in unusual circumstances and not without prior approval of the
NIH awarding component.  The maximum period of support for any investigator is
four years.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for application procedures, review
criteria, and funding.
