The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute is pleased to announce the UCLA CTSI K Award Bridge Grant for highly qualified junior faculty who conduct mentored, interdisciplinary, patient-oriented research. Eligible junior faculty at one of the four UCLA CTSI institutions are invited to apply for a one-time bridging grant for up to $130,000 per year for 2 years.
This bridge funding is specifically intended to help junior faculty who have submitted a NIH K award grant (mentored career development scientist award) within the last 12 months and have received competitive scores on their proposal. This funding will support the faculty member and provide additional time for productivity as they strengthen their proposal for resubmission. This program emphasizes systems biology, clinical pharmacology and translational, community-partnered interventions to prepare trainees for interdisciplinary team science in all populations, across the life cycle. Diseases that disproportionately affect minority populations are a particular focus.
CTSI K Award Bridge Grant recipients will receive 2 years of funding or until receipt of an individual NIH K award (or equivalent grant from the Veterans Administration or foundation), whichever comes first. The following table lists the maximum allowable annual amounts for salary, fringe benefits, research expenses, tuition, travel, and statistical support. If selected for this award, you will be asked to provide a budget and budget justifications at that time.
|Scholar Salary (75% effort)||>$75,000|
|Scholar Fringe Benefits (capped at 30%)||>$22,500|
|MAXIMUM DIRECT COSTS/YEAR||$130,000|
The following criteria will be used to select K Award Bridge Scholars:
