The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the Triological Society are offering a competitive grant program to provide supplemental funding to an otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon who has recently received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08/K23). Specifically, the grant will be given to a new NIH award recipient or to a surgeon who has an existing award with a minimum of three years remaining in the funding period as of June 1, 2014.
This grant is being offered 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 before the K award ends. This grant provides financial support totaling $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.
