Diversity Supplement

DOE SBIR and STTR awardees that receive a Phase II grant are eligible to apply for an administrative diversity supplement to be effective in the summer months of their Phase II during the second year project period. The purpose of the Phase II supplement is to improve the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting undergraduate and graduate students from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in federal SBIR/STTR research programs.  To facilitate an application for a diversity supplement request, please use the following template and budget form.  For full instructions on Phase II awardee eligibility, how, and when to submit a diversity supplement, all first year Phase II awardees should refer to the Phase II Funding Opportunity Announcement to which they received their Phase II award.
