YCCI Scholar Awards

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 research careers focused on improving human health. This includes basic research, clinical research, community-based research and translational research. Individuals must be nominated by a department chair, division head/section chief, or center/program director. The primary aim of these awards is to prepare the applicant for successful independent research careers, and emphasis will be placed on career development and mentoring plans. 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 $20,000 of research support per year for a basic, clinical, community-based, or translational research project. Applicants who already have either a career development award or a substantial Departmental start-up package are not eligible for salary support but may submit an application for up to $20,000 in research support per year (The specific aims of this additional research support must be different from the specific aims of the career development award, though they can be related).
