Funding Opportunities

NIH K99/R00 Career Transition Awards

The purpose of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) program is to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees to launch competitive, independent research careers. There are no citizenship requirements for this funding; however, there is a time limit of eligibility related to when the terminal degree was awarded (usually 4 years).
