Eligibility Criteria

We encourage a diverse set of individuals from a range of disciplines (PhDs, MDs, social scientists, psychologists), institutions, and geography to apply. Scholars should be early career researchers (within five years of conferral of their doctorate) or mid-career scholars who want to pursue D&I research in chronic disease prevention. Participation in this program requires:

  • Prior experience writing/co-writing an NIH award or one to another government agency or foundation
  • Full time appointment at a home institution with an on-site mentor supportive of the scholar’s progress in grant writing and publications in the area of D&I research (this training does not provide salary support).
  • Access to a health department, clinic, service, and/or policy setting that can serve as pilot site for the scholar’s D&I research.
