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. 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. Grants requests may provide up to 4 years of funding, which includes additional research funds, tuition, stipend and health insurance.
