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 is May 23, 2015. For further details please visit the Triological Society’s website. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
