CTSI K Scholars Program

The K Scholars Program supports the career development of junior faculty at UCSF and affiliated institutions who are building careers in clinical and translational research. There are two ways to participate:

  • Receiving KL2 intramural career development awards from CTSI (applications submitted in winter, awardees announced in spring). Competition is rigorous as the program receives applications from junior faculty from across campus. The KL2 resources include salary support and research project support, and may be 4-5 years in duration. Apply for a KL2 Award
  • Receiving career development awards from the National Institutes of Health (K23, K08, K01, faculty diversity supplements), or equivalent awards from foundations or other UCSF career development programs. Apply to the K Program with an outside award

K-Grant Writing Workshop

Workshop offered three times per year for approximately 4 UCSF clinical research scholars (fellows or early junior faculty), who are planning to apply for a K-series grant in patient-oriented research (e.g., K23 or K08 mechanisms). This is a structured set of faculty-facilitated works-in-progress sessions, focused on writing a mentored K-grant, for submission during the upcoming K-cycle due date. Learn more and apply
