In an effort to support our diverse UW student communities, several units and centers across UW are supporting a student workshop and information sharing for students and faculty interested in taking advantage of NIH Diversity Supplements. Diversity Supplements can provide between 6 months to 5 years of funding (research funds, tuition, stipend and health insurance) for students and alumni supported by a faculty mentor/supervisor holding an eligible NIH grant.
