REACH Equity -- Diversity Supplement [Duke Internal Funding]

Funding Agency:
Duke University

The REACH Equity Center is eligible for “Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research” ( ).

These mentored research awards are administrative supplements tied to a funded (“parent”) study or center.  REACH Equity may apply for one award to be sponsored by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). NIMHD supports supplement applications for fellows and junior faculty. NIMHD will make the ultimate funding decision about a proposed REACH Equity diversity supplement.

This internal RFA will identify one applicant/proposal for submission to NIMHD. Internal review will include evaluation of each application by the REACH Equity Executive Operating Committee (EOC), which will discuss any application of interest with the appropriate NIMHD project officer to determine whether a full application would be considered for this funding mechanism.

Deadline: Feb. 28, 2019
