Specific information regarding individual CDAs
Individuals who have already obtained an individual Kaward will not be eligible to apply for our KL2 award.
The KL2 award is an Institutional Mentored Clinical Research CDA. It is similar in intent, scope, and funding to individual mentored K awards. All NIH Mentored CDAs have the same general level of effort requirements. However, there are several important differences. The application materials and time to notification are much shorter. A personal interview is required. Furthermore, because a group of scholars will be chosen together, there will be a cohort of scholars to provide numerous opportunities to develop collaborative relationships early in the program.
A core curriculum will be provided that will develop general scholarship in a breadth of clinical research topics. Intensive clinical research mentorship is also a primary focus of the CTSA KL2 award.
Finally, awards will be determined by a committee comprised of UW, Seattle Children’s, Fred Hutch, and other ITHS partner faculty and affiliated investigators.
