​About the Mentored Research Awards: 

The Mentored Research Awards aim to recruit and train an outstanding group of health scientists, diverse in discipline and background, who are at an early career stage. Through this award, highly qualified junior researchers will receive 75% protected research time (exceptions will be considered, see below) to conduct clinical and translational research projects within a structured career-development program.  

The Mentored Research Awards Provide: 

  • Up to 75% protected time* up to $90,000 to conduct a clinical or translational research project for up to two years;

  • An additional $25,000 each year for education or research supplies: a Certificate or Master’s degree in Clinical and Translational Research at the Brown University School of Public Health is encouraged; and 
  • Mentoring and specialized training that will prepare scholars to make significant advances in interdisciplinary strategies devoted to clinical and translational research.

*Advance-CTR considers percent effort between 50-75%; however, justification and approval are required. The applicant must indicate the percent effort they intend to devote and provide a justification with the preliminary application (upload in the “Additional Documentation” UFunds field).

The investigator must obtain documented departmental support and approval from Advance-CTR before submitting a full proposal.  Investigators who are considering devoting less than 75% professional effort should speak with Advance-CTR leadership prior to submitting a preliminary application.
