ACS/Triological Society Clinical Scientist Development Award

The American College of Surgeons and the Triological Society announce a competitive grant program to provide supplemental funding to otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons who have received a new NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08/K23), or have an existing award with a minimum of three years remaining in the funding period as of June 1, 2015. This award is being offered as a means to facilitate the research career development of otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, with the expectation that the awardee will have sufficient pilot data to submit a competitive R01 proposal prior to the conclusion of the K award. This award provides financial support in the amount of $80,000 per year for up to five years, or for the remainder of the term of existing grants, to supplement the K08/K23 awards. Funding is dependent upon receipt of meritorious applications.

The application deadline was May 15, 2015. A new grant program will announced in the spring of 2016. For further details, please visit the Triological Society’s website or contact
