Supplements provide funding for research, professional development and academic support (tuition, stipend, benefits), with funding available for up to 5 years.

Supplements are directed to US citizens who self-identify as being part of an underrepresented racial/ethnic minority, individuals with  disabilities, or individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
