The Duke CTSA KL2 provides skilled and personalized mentoring, a coordinated and tailored scientific and career development curriculum, and the opportunity to conduct clinical or translational (bench to bedside) research. The KL2 program is particularly committed to increasing diversity of the research workforce.

Up to four scholars will be awarded 75% total protected effort for 3 years, up to $20,000/year for research expenses, and up to $2,500/year for travel to professional meetings.  Benefits are contingent upon available funding.Funding will start July, 2020.

If applying to the Duke CTSA KL2, please consider the REACH Equity and KL2 Application Preparation Program (REKAPP). REKAPP is a 6-8 week program in which participants will work with a faculty member and a small peer group on specific parts of the KL2 application.  Space is limited, and applications are due August 17th.

REKAPP Application Deadline: August 17, 2020
