CHRI Announcement: New Funding Opportunity for Instructors on NIH K-awards

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

The Stanford Child Health Research Institute is pleased to announce a new, internal funding opportunity for early-career investigators who pursue Career Development (K) Awards through the National Institute of Health (NIH). 

Starting fall of fiscal year 2019, instructors on individual NIH K-awards may apply for supplemental support through the Instructor K-award Support Program. The CHRI will match departmental commitments of up to $25,000 per year, for a combined funding of CHRI/departmental support of up to $50,000 per year for up to two years. 

The CHRI recognizes that the NIH K-award series provides substantial salary support but limited research funding. The Instructor K-award Support Program aims to help with this shortfall in research support to expand the number of future academic leaders in maternal and child health. The CHRI/departmental funds support non-salary research costs only and not intended to provide additional salary or benefits.

The Instructor K Award Support Program requires the recipient to be an instructor at Stanford University who is applying for, or currently funded by, an individual NIH K-award. For more information about this new program, visit
