The participating Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) along with the Office of Research on Womens Health
announces a continuing program for administrative supplements to
research grants to support individuals with high potential to reenter
an active research career after taking time off to care for children or
attend to other family responsibilities. The aim of these supplements
is to encourage such individuals to reenter research careers within the
missions of all the program areas of NIH. This program will provide
administrative supplements to existing NIH research grants for the
purpose of supporting full-time or part-time research by these
individuals in a program geared to bring their existing research skills
and knowledge up to date. It is anticipated that at the completion of
the supplement, the reentry scientist will be in a position to apply
for a career development (K) award, a research award, or some other
form of independent research support.

The NIH recognizes the need to increase the number of underrepresented
racial and ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, and
people from disadvantaged backgrounds in biomedical, behavioral,
clinical and social science research careers. Among the reasons for the
low representation of women may be the fact that women bear a majority
of the responsibilities surrounding child and family care. To address
this issue, this program is designed to offer opportunities to women
and men who have interrupted their research careers to care for
children or parents or to attend to other family responsibilities. A
second objective of the program is to mentor and guide those who
receive support to reestablish careers in biomedical, behavioral,
clinical or social science research. Participating NIH institutes and
centers are listed at the end of the announcement.
