Scholars Program

Check back for future RFA announcements

The IDeA-CTR Scholars Program is administered through an NIH/NIGMS grant entitled “Great Plains IDeA-CTR” with the goal of developing successful clinical translational research (CTR) investigators.
To achieve this goal, the program will provide selected Scholars with the protected time and seed grant funding to develop competitive CTR projects for submission to the NIH. Scholars accepted into the program will receive salary support of up to 50% FTE (including fringe benefits) and up to $50,000 annually to support preliminary research efforts for up to four years. 


Questions arising during application development may be sent directly the Professional Development KCA Director, Dr. Ted Mikuls, Operational Director, Dr. Lani Zimmerman, or the Great Plains IDeA CTR Education Coordinator, Heather Braddock.
