What is this offering?

The new MICHR K12 is a two-year award that provides protected research time, mentorship, and competency-based career development for translational scholars with a doctoral degree in a clinical or health focus.

Awardees will receive career development training in addition to concierge-level support as they connect with the vast U-M resources.

Persons ready to prepare their own independent K are too senior for this new program. Eligible applicants can be from any U-M campus (Ann Arbor, Flint, Dearborn). Funding must be used within two years.
