The UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI) is pleased to invite Letters of Intent (LOI) for the 2022 KL2 Mentored Research Career Development Scholar Awards.
KL2 Scholar Awards are part of the TRI Career Development Scholars Program, which provides support for early-career UAMS faculty with a professional degree (M.D., Ph.D., Pharm.D., D.N.P., Dr.PH., D.O., etc.) who are committed to an academic career in multidisciplinary clinical or translational research.
Successful applicants will begin the two-year program July 1, 2022. The KL2 program combines an innovative educational program with mentored clinical/translational science research. KL2 Scholars receive:
- Salary support/stipend of up to $95,000 (including fringe) per year.
- Up to $25,000 of non-salary support per year, which can be used for research, tuition, travel expenses, educational materials and other costs related to the scholar’s research.
The deadline for submitting LOIs is Jan. 24, 2022, 5 p.m. (CT).
The KL2 program is supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program of the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
