The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) announce the continuation of the program for administrative supplements to research grants to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after taking time off for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances. The aim of these supplements is to encourage such individuals to re-enter 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 to update their existing research skills and knowledge, while contributing to the scope of the original project. It is anticipated that at the completion of the supplement, the re-entry scientist will be in a position to apply for a career development (K) award, a research award (R), or some other form of research support.

This program is designed to offer opportunities to women and men who have interrupted their research careers as described in Section III, “Eligible Candidates for the Supplement Program.” PD/PIs are also encouraged to identify applicants who will enhance diversity on a national basis. The program aims to provide mentoring and guidance to these individuals in reestablishing their careers in biomedical, behavioral, clinical or social science research.
