Enhancing Diversity in Training Programs Institutional training programs are required to demonstrate successful efforts to recruit and retain an outstanding and diverse trainee population, including students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and students with disabilities.
The Institutional Training Grant (T32) announcement calls for a "Recruitment and Retention Plan to Enhance Diversity" and specifies groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences to include: A) individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups shown to be underrepresented nationally (see data at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/showpub.cfm?TopID=2&SubID=27 and the report Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering) defined as Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders and B) individuals with disabilities, defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. See https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-20-031.html for more details. Institutions are encouraged to identify candidates who will increase diversity on a national basis. Note that training grant programs supporting only graduate-level students and/or postdoctoral fellows are not required to address disadvantaged individuals in their Recruitment and Retention Plan.
