The purpose of the Clinician Scientist Mentoring Award to Promote Workforce Diversity is to provide support to mid-career health-professional doctorates or equivalent (See Section III) for protected time to devote effort to basic, epidemiological or outcomes research and to act as research mentors to early-stage investigators from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research. Candidates for this award should have independent, peer-reviewed, research support at the time of award and possess a demonstrated record of mentoring individuals from underrepresented backgrounds. The candidate's research should demonstrate a sustained level of research productivity in the research areas supported by the NIDDK. The long-term objective of this funding opportunity is to provide mentors with protected time to enhance mentoring opportunities for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds, thereby ensuring the availibility of a pool of scientists from diverse backgrounds to facilitate research within the mission areas of the NIDDK.
The NIH has funds available for administrative supplements to support diversity and re-entry into the research workforce. Supplements are available for program directors or principal investigators holding specific types of NIH research grants to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting and recruiting students, post doctorates, and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research.
