Become a Mentor and Train Students for Research Careers

Mentor: NIH-Funded Researchers

Offer your expertise and assist the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in building a cadre of diverse scientists in the behavioral and social sciences.

What are the steps?

Visit the OBSSR’s Promoting Diversity Through Mentoring Web Page to learn more about the program.  Add your name to the database of Principal Investigators (PI’s) who are interested in mentoring.  Wait to be contacted by underrepresented students, post-docs, or junior faculty who have an interest in your research area.  Then simply apply for an administrative supplement to your NIH grant by contacting your program officer.
