K-Awards Training

K awards provide support for senior postdoctoral fellows or faculty-level candidates. K awards are designed to promote the career development of specific groups of individuals based on their past training and career stage. The objective of these programs is to bring candidates to the point where they are able to conduct their research independently and are competitive for major grant support.

Thanks to University of Colorado, Denver and Naomi Nishi, Associate Director for Educational Outreach, for the following videos covering how to plan, apply and implement K-awards:
