KL2 Junior Faculty Scholars Program: Application Deadline is Extended

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, GHUCCTS has reconsidered their application, selection, and appointment cycle for new KL2 scholars. Most current KL2 scholars, nationally, have been unable to make significant research progress due to practical and institutional restrictions, despite continued KL2 support. We want to make sure that our next KL2 scholars have the best opportunity to benefit fully from their new awards.

Final evaluation of previously-submitted applications has been deferred and the call for new KL2 applications has been reopened. Projects that are novel, inter-or multi-disciplinary and collaborative will be favored. The KL2 scholars will be awarded up to $90, 000 salary support and $40,000 project support per year (for up to three years). 

The 2020 application deadline has been extended to July 6, 2020 and an anticipated appointment date no earlier than September 2020. 

Who is eligible: Junior Faculty with a full-time or equivalent appointment at a GHUCCTS institution (Georgetown University, Howard University, or MedStar Health) at the time of award activation. Scholars must devote 75% effort to the program for three yearsscholars must be US Citizens, Non-citizen Nationals, or Permanent Residents. Individuals who were, or currently are Principal Investigator of NIH R01, P01 or P50 subprojects, or individual K (e.g., K01, K08, K22, K23) grant ARE NOT eligible; current/former PIs of non-NIH peer reviewed research grants >$100k annual direct costs are ineligible.
