Who should attend?
The first workshop (Feb 27 & 28) are intended for faculty (i.e., core, adjunct, affiliate, etc.) and post-doctorates interested in transitioning to independent researchers. In Spring Quarter, we will host another workshop for graduate students (dates TBD). Grant managers and support staff that typically assist in the grant application process may also attend.
What are Diversity Supplements?
Diversity Supplements are administrative grants that tie into existing NIH grants held by faculty. They directly align with the UW Diversity Blueprint, increasing a diverse student body and future workforce. Supplements provide additional funding for research, professional development and academic support (i.e., tuition, stipend and health insurance), with funding available for up to 4 years.
How much support do they provide students?
The average annual cost of hiring a graduate or post-doctoral student Research Assistant ranges from $65-80K. A Diversity Supplement will defray these costs by adding supplemental grant funding, so that faculty can focus on mentorship and research. Grant requests may provide up to 5 years of funding, which includes additional research funds, tuition, stipend and health insurance.
