Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity Revised

Created: January 31, 2018

Notice Number: NOT-OD-18-129

This notice revises the previous Notice of NIH Interest in Diversity: NOT-OD-18-122 to clarify that Native Hawaiians are included in category A Underrepresented Populations, and that the revision to category A to permit participation in diversity programs of ‘individuals from racial or ethnic groups that can be demonstrated convincingly to be underrepresented by the grantee institution’ supersedes the current diversity language in existing funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). 

NIH’s mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and to apply that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. To achieve this mission, NIH substantially invests in research to improve public health; it also devotes substantial resources to identify, develop, support and maintain the quality of its scientific resources, including human capital.

This diversity statement was informed by a literature review, the reports and deliberations of several internal NIH committees, as well as input from Institute and Center officials, program staff and external stakeholders.


This notice is effective upon its release date and supercedes the current diversity language in existing funding opportunity announcements (FOAs).
