RESEARCH SUPPLEMENTS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES

NIH GUIDE, Volume 26, Number 37, November 7, 1997

P.T.

National Institutes of Health

BACKGROUND

A report, titled "Changing America:  The New Face of Science and Engineering"
issued by the President's Task Force on Women, Minorities, and the Handicapped
in Science and Technology, December 1989, has documented a very low participation
rate for Americans with disabilities in the science and engineering workforce.
To address this problem for the biomedical and behavioral research workforce, the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its awarding components have developed
an initiative that is designed to extend opportunities to individuals with
qualifying disabilities who are capable of entering or resuming research careers. 
Under this initiative, individuals with disabilities are encouraged to pursue
biomedical research careers in areas within the missions of all the awarding
components of the NIH through supplemental awards to certain ongoing research
grants.  It is hoped that the plan to provide funding at several different stages
in a research career will substantially increase the number of individuals with
disabilities in biomedical research. The NIH hereby notifies Principal
Investigators holding certain NIH research grants of the availability of funds
for administrative supplements to existing grants for the support and recruitment
of scientists and students with disabilities. Supplemental awards are available
to support individuals with disabilities from each of the following population
groups:

o  HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.  Supplements under this program are designed to foster
         an interest in  biomedical and behavioral research.

o  UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS.  This program provides support for undergraduate
students to encourage them to continue on to graduate level training in the
biomedical and behavioral sciences.

o  GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS.  Graduate students can receive support under
this program to develop their research capabilities.

o INDIVIDUALS IN POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING.  This program provides support during
postdoctoral training to enable the development of an independent career in
biomedical research.

o  INVESTIGATORS DEVELOPING INDEPENDENT RESEARCH CAREERS.  Staff and faculty
members with a doctoral degree can receive short and long-term support for
participation in an ongoing research project while further developing their own
independent research potential.

o  ESTABLISHED INVESTIGATORS WHO BECOME DISABLED.  This program will provide
additional support for established NIH investigators and project leaders on
components of program projects and center grants who become disabled.  The
additional support may be requested for assistants or special equipment that will
facilitate a continuing contribution to the goals of the parent grant.  Because
this program differs in substantial ways from the other supplemental awards
listed here, it is described in a separate section below.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

For all of the supplemental programs listed above, the proposed research
experience must be an integral part of the approved, ongoing research of the
parent grant.  Also, with the exception of the supplemental program for
Established Investigators Who Become Disabled, which is described in a separate
section, individuals with disabilities must be given the opportunity to interact
with individuals on the parent grant, to contribute intellectually to the
research, and to enhance his/her research skills and knowledge. Furthermore, the
Principal Investigator must demonstrate a willingness and understanding that the
purpose of the award is to enhance the research capability of the student or
faculty member with a disability, and that the research experience is intended
to provide opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop into
independent, competitive research investigators.  All awards made under these
programs will be consistent with the goals of strengthening the existing research
program and the overall programmatic balance and priorities of the funding
component at the NIH. Awards will be made according to the policies and
provisions stated in this announcement. Applicants are encouraged to contact the
NIH institute staff identified in the INQUIRIES section below prior to submission
in order to obtain specific information about application characteristics and
requirements. It is also recognized that individual circumstances vary and, for
unusual situations, NIH  program administrators should be consulted for a
determination of eligibility.

REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS

As a part of these awards, funds may be requested to make changes or adjustments
in the research setting that will make it possible for an otherwise qualified
employee with a disability to perform the essential functions associated with
his/her role on the project.  The accommodations requested under this program
must be DIRECTLY related to the performance of the proposed role on the research
project and must be appropriate to the disabilities of the individual.  Some
types of accommodations that might be provided under these awards include: 
specialized equipment, assistive devices, and personnel such as readers,
interpreters, or assistants.  In all cases, the total funds for accommodations
requested from the supplement must be reasonable in relationship to the direct
costs of the parent grant and the nature of the supplemental award.

ELIGIBILITY

RESEARCH GRANTS ELIGIBLE FOR SUPPLEMENTAL AWARDS:  Principal Investigators at
domestic institutions who hold an active R01, R10, R18, R22, R24, R35, R37, P01,
P20, P30, P40, P41, P50, P51, P60, U01, U10, U19, U41, or U42 grant are eligible
to submit a request for an administrative supplement to the awarding component
of the parent grant for any of the supplemental programs offered here.  Principal
Investigators holding an active First Independent Research Support and Transition
(FIRST) Award (R29), an Academic Research Enhancement Award (R15), an
Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21), or a Small Grant Award (R03) also may
apply for a supplement under this program.  Grantees with support from these
mechanisms MUST check with the appropriate awarding component before an
application for a supplement is submitted.  An R29 awardee may apply only when
the candidate is a high school, undergraduate, or graduate student. Awardees of
R03, R15, and R21 grants may apply only when the candidate with a disability is
a high school or an undergraduate student.  However, exceptions to these rules
may be made.  Applicants should check with their awarding component. Supplements
to R29, R15, and R03 awards may provide support above the established dollar
limits.  The P20, P30, and P60 award mechanisms are eligible for supplements only
when they contain research components.

In all cases, the parent grant must have support remaining for a reasonable
period at the time of a supplemental award (usually two years or more).

Usually, each parent grant may have only one supplement for a person with a
disability. Appointment of more than one individual to a single grant depends on
the nature of the parent grant, the circumstances of the request, and the program
balance of the awarding component. Supplemental awards under these programs do
not preclude a separate supplement to support an underrepresented minority.

DEFINITION:  For the purpose of this announcement, the definition in the
Americans with Disabilities Act will be used.  An individual with a disability
is one who þhas a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or
more major life activities, a record of such an impairment, or who is regarded
as having such an impairment.þ  Qualified individuals with disabilities are those
who, with reasonable accommodation for their disability, are capable of entering
a research career after appropriate experience and training.  A list of
disabilities that might confer eligibility for supplemental awards under this
program includes, but is not limited to, the following:  total deafness in both
ears, visual acuity less than 20/200 with corrective lenses, speech impairment,
missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, convulsive disorders,
mental or emotional illness, learning disabilities, kidney dialysis, and severe
distortion of limbs and/or spine.  In all cases, individuals supported under this
supplement program must, with reasonable assistance, be able to contribute to the
research supported by the parent grant.

CANDIDATES ELIGIBLE FOR SUPPORT BY A SUPPLEMENTAL AWARD:  The purpose of the
request will be to support a high school student, an undergraduate student, a
graduate research assistant, an individual in postdoctoral training, or a staff
or faculty member with a disability to participate in ongoing research projects. 
Awards will be limited to citizens, non-citizen nationals of the United States,
and individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e.,
in possession of an Alien Registration Receipt Card) at the time of application. 
Other specific eligibility requirements relative to each type of award are set
forth in the individual program descriptions below. Individuals with disabilities
may receive support under these programs on only one grant at any time, but may
be supported by more than one grant during the development of their research
careers. Support under the supplement programs is not transferable to another
individual. The research supplement programs for individuals with disabilities
have been designed to attract individuals with disabilities into research careers
and are not intended to provide an alternative means of supporting disabled
individuals who already receive support from a research grant or a research
training grant or any other DHHS funding mechanism.  Graduate students or
individuals in postdoctoral training who are supported by a National Research
Service Award (NRSA) research training grant may not be transferred to
supplemental support prior to the completion of their appointed period of
training.  Individuals may not be transferred to supplemental support simply to
increase the availability of funds to the parent grant for any other uses.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

A request for a supplement may be submitted at any time.  In making requests, the
grantee institution, on behalf of the principal investigator of the parent grant
and in cooperation with the individual with a disability, must submit the request
for supplemental funds directly to the awarding component that supports the
parent grant.  The request is not to be submitted to the NIH Center for
Scientific Review. Principal Investigators are encouraged to obtain the address
for submission from the NIH program administrator on the parent grant.

The request for a supplemental award must include the following:

1.  A completed face page (with appropriate signatures) from Grant Application
Form PHS 398.  Include the title and grant number of the parent grant on line 1
and the type of supplement being requested on line 2.

2.  A brief three to four page description, prepared by the Principal
Investigator of the parent grant, that includes:

a.  A summary or abstract of the funded grant or project.

b.  A description of the research experience proposed for the disabled
individual.

c.  A description of how the research experience will expand and foster the
training or independent research capabilities of the candidate and how the
research experience will relate to the specific research goals and objectives of
the parent grant.

3.  A signed statement from the candidate with a disability outlining his/her
research objectives and career goals.

4. A biographical sketch of the candidate that includes evidence of scientific
achievement or interest.

5.  Social Security Number of the candidate.  (The PHS requests the Social
Security Number for the purpose of accurate identification, referral, and review
of applications, and for efficient management of PHS grant programs.  Although
provision of the Social Security Number is voluntary, it will facilitate the
processing of applications for supplements.)

6.  A signed statement from the Principal Investigator establishing the
eligibility of the individual with a disability for support under this program
including information on citizenship, and a description of any previous PHS
research grant support the candidate has received. This must include information
certifying the individual's citizenship, the nature of the disability, any
occupational limitations associated with the disability, and the types of
accommodations that will permit the individual to undertake the proposed research
experience.  Also, the institution must indicate its contribution to aid
accommodation of the candidate to the research environment.

7.  A proposed budget entered on budget pages from Grant Application Form PHS
398, related to the percent effort (where appropriate) for the research
experience in the first and future years.  All special accommodations requested
must be detailed and justified in the budget section.  If the initial budget
period requested is less than 12 months, the budget should be prorated
accordingly.

8.  Documentation, if applicable, that the proposed research experience was
approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) or human
subjects Institutional Review Board (IRB) of the grantee institution must be
provided.  Adherence to the NIH policy for including women and minorities in
clinical studies must also be insured if additional human subjects' involvement
is planned for the supplement component.

9.  A copy of the most recent official transcript if the candidate is a high
school, undergraduate, or graduate student.

10.  If the individual with a disability is a student at another institution, the
application also must include an appropriately signed letter from a responsible
official at the institution of matriculation indicating that participation at the
stated level of effort is approved and will not detract from or interfere with
his/her course of studies.

11. If any of the research is to be conducted at a site other than the grantee
institution, an appropriately signed letter from the institution where the
research is to be conducted must be submitted. The request must be signed by the
individual with disabilities, the Principal Investigator, and the appropriate
institutional business official.

REVIEW CRITERIA

The staff of the particular awarding component will review requests for
supplements using the following general criteria:

1. The qualifications of the individual with a disability including career goals,
prior research training, research potential, and any relevant experience.

2.  The plan for the proposed research experience in the supplemental request and
its relationship to the parent grant.

3.  The appropriateness of the proposed accommodations for the candidate and
his/her role on the research project.  The appropriateness of the costs of the
proposed accommodations to be paid from the supplement relative to the cost of
the parent project and the nature of the requested supplemental award.  Evidence
that the proposed accommodations, including those provided by the grantee
institution, will be sufficient to enable the candidate to adapt to the research
environment.

4. Evidence from the Principal Investigator that the experience will enhance the
research potential, knowledge, and/or skills of the candidate, and that adequate
mentorship will be provided.

5.  Evidence from the Principal Investigator that the activities of the
individual with a disability will be an integral part of the project.

6.  Evidence of educational achievement and interest in science if the candidate
is a student. Additional criteria related to the specific programs may also apply
and are described below.

FUNDING

The decision to fund a supplement will take approximately eight weeks from
receipt of a complete application. Applicants for summer-only research
appointments must submit early enough to ensure that funding and accommodations
are in place by the time the summer experience is scheduled to begin.  In most
cases, during the first budget period, funds will be provided as an
administrative supplement to the parent grant.  In subsequent years, continued
funding for the supplement is contingent on continued funding of the parent grant
and cannot extend beyond the current competitive segment of the parent grant and
availability of funds.

Continuation of support for the individual with a disability in the remaining
years of the competitive segment of the grant will depend upon a satisfactory
review by the NIH awarding component of progress on both the parent grant and the
supplemental project, the research proposed for the next budget period, and the
appropriateness of the proposed budget for the proposed effort.

In non-competing applications, the progress report and budget for the individual
with a disability must be clearly delineated from the progress report and budget
for the parent grant.  The progress report in both non-competing and competing
applications must include information about the research activities supported by
the supplement even if support for future years is not requested.

In future competing applications, funds for continuation of support of the
individual with a disability will depend on the successful renewal of the parent
grant and will be handled as follows:

o  For students who have not yet completed their research experience, funds for
the continuation of support must be requested as a research supplement to ensure
continued tracking of the individual supported.  The request for continued
support should not be included in the competing renewal, but instead, should be
prepared as a letter with information on research progress and accomplishments
of the candidate. The request must be addressed to the program administrator of
the parent grant and must be submitted promptly in anticipation of a renewal
award to avoid an interruption of support. Support to individual students by this
mechanism will be limited to five years.  Additional time may be considered, but
must be well justified.

o  Funds for the continuation of support for a postdoctoral fellow or an
investigator with a disability must be requested by name in the parent grant
application at the time of renewal and may not be requested as a research
supplement. Postdoctoral fellows and investigators are expected to be fully
integrated in the research laboratory when considered for continuation of
support.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH SUPPLEMENT PROGRAMS

1.  HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

The purpose of this program is to provide high school students with disabilities
who have demonstrated an interest and an aptitude for scientific pursuits with
a meaningful experience in various aspects of health-related research to
stimulate interest in a career in science.

ELIGIBILITY

Any qualified high school student with a disability who is enrolled in good
standing at a local high school and is interested in biomedical or behavioral
research is encouraged to participate in this program.

PROVISIONS

This supplement is not to exceed $2,000 in direct costs, including supplies,
during a summer research experience. A part-time experience during the regular
school year would be reimbursed at the same hourly rate.  Funds over and above
this $2,000 limit may be requested to permit accommodation to the research
environment.  This may include research equipment if it is directly related to
both the project and to accommodating the disabilities of the student.  In all
cases, equipment may only be purchased with prior approval of the NIH awarding
component.

Students are expected to devote sufficient effort to the research project and
related activities during the period of support to gain insight into the process
of scientific discovery.  Support may be for a minimum of three months during any
one year which may include a mixture of full-time summer experience and part-time
experience during the school year.  Principal Investigators are encouraged to
seek high school students who will devote at least two years to this program
(i.e., equivalent to two three-month, full-time, periods).  Exceptions to the
latter will be considered, depending on the circumstances of the applicant, the
parent grant, and the specific request.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

2.  UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

This supplemental program provides an opportunity for any qualified undergraduate
student with a disability, who is interested in biomedical or behavioral
research, to participate in a research project at a research institution during
the summer months and/or during the school year.  This experience will be
separate and apart from any requirement of the regular academic program. The
success of this program is dependent on the ability of the Principal Investigator
to identify appropriate students.  A number of procedures may be used to match
investigators to appropriate college students:  (1) the Principal Investigator
may identify a student and initiate the request for the supplement; (2) the
institution may make the pairing of the student with the Principal Investigator;
(3) the student may contact a grantee institution or an investigator and request
a research experience.

ELIGIBILITY

The student may be affiliated with either the applicant institution or any other
academic institution.  Any qualified undergraduate student with a disability who
is interested in biomedical or behavioral research is encouraged to participate
in this program.

PROVISIONS

The salary for an undergraduate student should be consistent with the
institutional salary policies.  Institutional rates for undergraduate salary
which exceed $6 per hour must be justified.  An additional amount of $125 per
month for supplies and travel may also be requested.  Funds over and above this
limit may be requested to permit accommodation to the research environment. This
may include research equipment, but only if it is directly related to both the
project AND to accommodating the disabilities of the student.  In all cases,
equipment may only be purchased with prior approval of the NIH awarding
component.

Students are expected to devote an equivalent of at least three months full-time
effort to the research project and related activities in any one year, and in
most cases the period of support for any individual should last at least two
years.  Exceptions to the latter will be considered, depending on the
circumstances of the applicant, the parent grant, and the specific request. See
the GENERAL PROVISIONS section (above) for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

3.  GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS

The objective of this program is to offer additional encouragement to graduate
students with disabilities who have the potential to become researchers in
biomedical or behavioral sciences and give them an opportunity to develop their
research capability further.  Students who are supported on research or training
grants may not be supported on research supplements.

ELIGIBILITY

Any graduate student with a disability who is enrolled in a masters or a doctoral
degree program in biomedical or behavioral sciences is eligible for
consideration.

PROVISIONS

The NIH will provide salary support in addition to other necessary expenses, such
as supplies and travel, to enable the individual to participate as a graduate
research assistant in funded research projects. As in the past, the NIH will
continue to consider the compensation for the personal services of graduate
students and other employees rendered to an NIH research project to be allowable
as long as the compensation is reasonable and (1) conforms to the established,
consistently applied salary and wage policies of the institutions and (2)
reflects the percentage of time actually devoted to the PHS-funded project.  For
graduate students this compensation may include tuition remission paid as, or in
lieu of, wages provided that the student is in a bona fide employer-employee
relationship with the institution for the work performed, and payment is
conditioned explicitly on the performance of necessary work. Reasonable
compensation for graduate students must not exceed the amount allowable for a
first year postdoctoral level staff member at the same institution performing
comparable work (see NIH Guide announcement, Vol. 25, No. 8, March 15, 1996).
Additional funds up to $3,000 per year may be requested for supplies and travel. 
Funds may not be used to purchase equipment. Funds may also be requested to
permit accommodation to the research environment.  This may include research
equipment, but only if it is directly related to both the project AND to
accommodating the disabilities of the student.  In all cases, equipment may only
be purchased with prior approval of the NIH awarding component.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

4.  INDIVIDUALS IN POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING

These supplements provide support to individuals with disabilities in the
postdoctoral phase of training to participate in ongoing research projects that
will assist in the development of a career in biomedical or behavioral research. 
Postdoctoral fellows who are supported on research or training grants may not be
supported on research supplements.  Toward the end of the supplement award,
candidates should be encouraged to apply for fellowships, FIRST awards, and other
sources of independent support.

ELIGIBILITY

The individual in postdoctoral training may be affiliated with either the
applicant institution or any other institution.  Only under extraordinary
circumstances, that must be well justified in the application, would it be
acceptable for the candidate to continue working with his/her former predoctoral
mentor.

PROVISIONS

Support will be provided for a salary in addition to other necessary expenses,
such as supplies and travel, to enable the individual to participate as a
postdoctoral research assistant in funded research projects.  The requested
salary and fringe benefits must be in accordance with the salary structure of the
grantee institution, consistent with the level of effort, and may not exceed
$40,000 per year. Additional funds up to $6,000 may be requested for supplies and
travel. Funds may also be requested to permit accommodation to the research
environment.  This may include research equipment, but only if it is directly
related to both the project AND to accommodating the disabilities of the
individual.  In all cases, equipment may only be purchased with prior approval
of the NIH awarding component.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for information about application
procedures, review criteria, and funding.

5.  INVESTIGATORS DEVELOPING INDEPENDENT RESEARCH CAREERS

These supplements provide either short-or long-term research support for staff
or faculty members with disabilities to enhance their research skills leading to
an independent research career.

o  Short-term Investigator Research Supplement.  This supplement provides short-
term support for staff or faculty members to conduct full-time research for three
to five months each year during the summer or another portion of the academic
year, over a maximum period of four years.

o  Long-term Investigator Research Supplement.  This supplement provides long-
term research support for staff or faculty members to conduct research in the
biomedical or behavioral sciences.  Support is  provided for up to four years at
a minimum of 30 percent effort during each 12-month period.

ELIGIBILITY

The investigator with a disability may be affiliated with either the applicant
institution or any other institution.  The investigator must have a doctoral
degree, be beyond the level of a research trainee, be a member of the staff or
faculty, and have at least one year of postdoctoral experience.  The investigator
may have received prior research or research training support from the NIH or
support under the Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Program, Minority-
Research Infrastructure Support Program (M-RISP), Minority Access to Research
Careers (MARC) Program, Career Opportunities in Research Education and Training
(COR), Small Grants (R03), or Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) Program. 
However, an individual who has received independent research support as a
Principal Investigator on an individual research grant (e.g., R01, R29), or as
a project leader on a program project or center grant (e.g., P01, P50), or as a
Principal Investigator on an individual research career award (e.g., K01, K02,
K07, K08, and K12) is not eligible for support under this program.

PROVISIONS

The salary limit of $50,000 per year in direct cost for the investigator
supplemental award has been removed.  The requested salary and fringe benefits
for an investigator must be in accordance with the salary structure of the
grantee institution, consistent with the level of effort.  Additional funds of
up to $10,000 may be requested for supplies and travel.  Funds may be requested
to permit accommodation to the research environment.  This may include research
equipment, but only if it is directly related to both the project AND to
accommodating the disabilities of the investigator.  In all cases, equipment may
only be purchased with prior approval of the NIH awarding component.  The maximum
period of support for any investigator is four years.

The amount of salary requested must be consistent with the policies of the parent
grantee institution (and, if applicable, the disabled investigator's employing
institution) and must be related to the percent effort of the investigator.

See the GENERAL PROVISIONS section above for application procedures, review
criteria, and funding.

6.  SUPPLEMENTS FOR ESTABLISHED INVESTIGATORS WHO BECOME DISABLED

Established investigators on NIH research, program project, or center grants who
become disabled during the current project period may request special
accommodations to permit completion of the currently funded research project.

ELIGIBILITY

Any currently funded Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator or other senior
staff (hereinafter referred to as Established Investigator) on an NIH research
project grant, program project grant, or center grant may request support for
special equipment, an assistant, or other modifications to facilitate
accommodation to a disabling injury or illness that has occurred during the
current project period.

PROVISIONS

Support will be limited to items that will permit the investigator to complete
the remaining years of a currently funded research project. This might include: 
salary support for an individual who can assist the Established Investigator in
meeting the goals of the research project, specialized equipment such as
computers, or modifications of the working environment.  In all cases, the
requested support must be consistent with the type of disability and the nature
of the approved research.  The total amount of support requested under this
supplement must be reasonable in relationship to the direct costs of the parent
award and the Established Investigator's role and effort on the project.  In
future competing applications, funds for continuation of the accommodations
provided under this supplement must be requested in the parent grant application
and may NOT be requested as a research supplement.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

A request for a supplement may be submitted at any time.  In making requests, the
grantee institution, on behalf of the Established Investigator, must submit the
request for supplemental funds directly to the awarding component that supports
the parent grant.  The request must include the following:

o  A completed face page from Grant Application Form PHS 398 with the title and
grant number of the parent grant and a statement that specifies which type of
supplement is being requested.

o  A statement by the Established Investigator describing the nature of the
disability and the attendant limitations on his/her capacity to complete the
goals established for the current project period.

o  A statement from the institution certifying the disability and describing the
types of accommodations requested and their relationship to the research project
and the disabilities of the Established Investigator.

o  A proposed budget entered on budget pages from Grant Application Form PHS 398. 
The budget must reflect all special accommodations to support the adaptation of
the Established Investigator to the research environment. The request must be
signed by the Principal Investigator, the Established Investigator with
disabilities (if other than the Principal Investigator), and the appropriate
institutional business official.

REVIEW CRITERIA

The staff of the particular awarding component will review requests for
supplements using the following criteria:

o  The appropriateness of the proposed accommodations for the Established
Investigator regarding his/her role on the research project and the nature of the
disability.

o  The appropriateness of the cost of the proposed accommodations to be paid from
the supplement in relationship to the total direct cost of the parent project.

FUNDING

See the section on funding in the GENERAL PROVISIONS section, above.
