The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the Triological Society have announced a competitive grant program to provide supplemental funding to otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons who have received a new National Institutes of Health Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08/K23) or who have an existing award with a minimum of three years remaining in the funding period as of June 1. The application deadline is May 15, 2015.
This award is being offered as a means of facilitating 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 period.
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 application. For further details, visit the Triological Society’s website. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
