The NIH provides funding to attract minority trainees and faculty to research careers. NIH Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supplement) PA-16-288 provides additional funding for trainees and faculty to work on an existing NIH-funded project in a particular area of interest.
Principal Investigators who hold an active R01, R10, R18, R22, R24, R35, R37, P01, P20, P30, P40, P41, P50, P51, P60, U01, U10, U19, U41, U42, U54, or UL1 grant are generally eligible to submit a request for an Administrative Supplement to the parent grant. Principal Investigators holding 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. See a complete list of eligible grants.
First step: Principal Investigators interested in submitting an application for a diversity supplement should begin by contacting the NIH staff (Table of IC-Specific Information, Requirements and Staff Contacts) who are administering the parent grant. Some institutes have specific application instructions and requirements.
The NIH definition is included in "Section I. Funding Opportunity Description" of PA-16-288, and is summarized here:
The NIH believes that by providing research opportunities for qualified individuals at various career levels, the number entering and remaining in health-related research careers will increase. Accordingly, Principal Investigators are encouraged to consider administrative supplements under this program for candidates at the following career levels:
To enhance training and education of supplement awardees, consider inclusion of fees or tuition costs in the supplement budget for pertinent courses or workshops.

UCLA Corporate, Foundation and Research Relations
The Corporate, Foundation and Research Relations (CFRR) team in Health Sciences Development is here to support investigators in establishing and strengthening relationships with private institutional funders. CFRR's goal is to increase the amount of funding received by UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA from corporations and foundations in order to advance faculty-initiated projects, departmental priorities, and the university mission.
