Playing Fair?: Minority Research Institutions Call for NIH to Address Funding Disparities
Stuart, Reginald
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v29 n19 p18-23 Oct 2012
When Ph.D. science and health researchers are seeking financial support for their health science studies, more often than not they apply to the federal government's National Institutes of Health (NIH) for an RO1 research grant, which boosts a project's standing in the research community as well as the career of the applicant. Even before the NIH Ph.D. study, leaders in the HBCU community had begun to speak more about the need for the NIH to address the funding disparities. In December 2010, Hampton University President William Harvey, writing in his capacity as chairman of President Obama's Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, complained of the "paucity" of research funding being awarded to "HBCUs in general and minority researchers, specifically." In this article, the author discusses how minority research institutions call for NIH to address funding disparities.
