As stated in the Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity, NIH identifies Individuals with Disabilities as an underrepresented population in the U.S. biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences research enterprise.

Those funding opportunity announcements designed to encourage diversity in the biomedical workforce, such as Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship To Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Parent F31-Diversity) or NIAID Research Education Program Advancing the Careers of a Diverse Research Workforce (R25, Clinical Trial Not Allowed), likewise recognize individuals with disabilities as an underrepresented population.
