We are pleased to announce a request for applications for YCCI Scholar Awards, which provide salary and/or research funds to a select number of junior faculty members who are strongly committed to careers in clinical or translational research. Individuals must be nominated by a department chair, division head/section chief, or center/program director. Awards will be for a total of 2 years. Funds can be requested to cover up to 75% of an individual’s salary (with a maximum of $100,000 including fringe benefits per year) and up to $25,000 of research support per year for a clinical or translational research project. Applicants who already have a career development award can submit an application for up to $25,000 in research support per year, but this must be for a separate (though possibly related) project from the one supported by the career development award. The applicant must have been a faculty member for no more than 5 years by the anticipated start date of July 1, 2013.
