UFCD Transition to Scientific Independence Award (TSIA)
Research Funding Opportunity
Deadline: Dec. 1st, 2013
The primary objective of the UFCD Transition to Scientific Independence Award (TSIA) is to support independent research projects spearheaded by post-doctoral associates and fellows that can lead to preliminary data that will enhance the likelihood of the individual to secure K or R awards from the NIH, or similar awards from other agencies/foundations. In addition, recipients of this funding will be required to submit a Final Report and present their findings at the UFCD Research Day, typically in the Spring of the year after the award is issued. It is also expected that recipients of the TSIA awards will submit a proposal for extramural funding within 18 months of issuance of the award.
