Applicants are expected to serve as a research mentor to the candidate for the duration of the Diversity Supplement Grant.

Additionally, the candidate and principal investigator must submit a final report that includes findings of research project. At the conclusion of the grant, the candidate must provide an impact statement on their research work and how the experience has or will assist in their development of pursuing a research career.
