The 2020 application cycle is now closed.
Applicants will be notified of the program’s decision by mid-March.
Interested in applying for the 2021 cycle?
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.
