NIH Workforce Resource Eligibility Matrix
In an effort to increase awareness and encourage participation in the many supportive programs and resources at NIH, the Women’s Employment Committee has created the NIH Workforce Resource Eligibility Matrix. A text version is also available.
The Matrix is a tool designed to assist the NIH Workforce in identifying available resources, shown in the document’s left hand column, and determining their eligibility based on employee type, shown in the top row. This is an overview and not intended to replace guidance available within the specific resources listed. Please consult the specific resource if you are interested in participating.
