How to Apply for the Diversity Supplement Grant by July 29, 2024

Overview of the Diversity Supplement Grant

The Diversity Supplement Grant offers a unique opportunity for sleep and circadian science investigators with a funded research program to support mentored research training for promising students, post-doctoral fellows, and clinical fellows. This initiative aims to include members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in U.S. science in sleep and circadian research projects.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for this grant, principal investigators must hold an active sleep and circadian science research grant from a U.S. federal agency or a U.S.-based non-profit organization. Candidates who wish to be supported by the diversity supplement grant must meet specific criteria, including being enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or health professional degree-granting program, a post-baccalaureate program, or within one year of completing their bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree. Additionally, clinical residents, post-doctoral fellows, and clinical fellows are eligible to be supported.

Application Process

Applications for the Diversity Supplement Grant must be submitted by July 29, 2024. The proposed research should address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep and circadian science, sleep disorders, and/or sleep health. The research must provide meaningful experience to stimulate or retain interest in sleep research careers and develop candidates’ research capabilities. For those with advanced education or training, the research should support the preparation for an independent sleep research career.

Additional Information

Eligible candidates must be from groups identified as underrepresented in the extramural U.S. biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences workforce. Candidates must also be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or lawful permanent residents. For more information, visit the official website at Diversity Supplement Award.
