Life Event Supplement Funding to Promote Research Continuity

To help overcome faculty attrition and minimize workforce loss, NHLBI offers supplemental funding opportunities to eligible early-stage investigators facing critical life events. These supplements provide up to $70,000 in direct costs for up to one year to support research projects during critical life events, such as childbirth, adoption, and primary caregiving responsibilities for an ailing spouse, child, partner, or a member of the immediate family during the project period. The funding can help sustain the investigator’s research by supporting additional personnel, computational services, and supplies and equipment.

Application Deadlines: June 1, October 1, and February 1. View the funding opportunities for details: NOT-OD-23-031 (K-awardees, including K99) and NOT-OD-23-032 (first-time recipients of RPG awards, including R00), and see the NHLBI IC-specific table for additional eligibility criteria.
