NIGMS Funding Opportunity: Administrative Supplements to Support Undergraduate Summer Research Experiences


The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces the availability of funds for Administrative Supplements to NIGMS-funded R01, R35, and R37 awards. These funds are intended for support of undergraduate students who are considering pursuing biomedical research careers by providing authentic research experiences in cutting-edge scientific environments during the summer.

For this supplement program, undergraduate students with a demonstrated interest in, or desire to pursue, research in health-related sciences may participate in a research project during the summer months. The research experiences can be conducted remotely or in-person, depending on the institutional policies. This experience is separate from any requirement of the regular academic program. The student may be affiliated with either the applicant institution or another academic institution.

Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project. For more information about how to apply for these funds, please see the Notice of Special Interest page:
