Sexual & Gender Minority Administrative Supplements Program
The National Institutes of Health is currently accepting applications for the Sexual & Gender Minority (SGM) Administrative Supplements program (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-22-032.html). Applications are reviewed once annually; the due date for Fiscal Year 2023 is January 31, 2023 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
This program allows the addition of SGM populations or related research questions to existing, active parent grants, provided that the proposed research is within the scope of the parent grant. A wide variety of projects have been funded at NIH since the program’s inception in 2016 (see the program’s website here), including those not typically associated with SGM populations. For example, previous grantees have added in a sample to their current studies, completed a pilot study or secondary analysis of SGM populations. I encourage you to apply if it is relevant to your project.
More information about the program, application process, and related contact information can be found within the Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) regarding Administrative Supplements for Research on Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (NOT-OD-22-032). Basic, social, behavioral, clinical, translational, and health services research may be proposed in response to this solicitation.
As evident in the NIDDK Strategic Plan for Research, NIDDK is committed to empowering a multidisciplinary research community, engaging diverse stakeholders, and leveraging discoveries of connections among diseases to improve prevention, treatment, and health equity (including SGM populations)—pathways to health for all.
