College Research Day Awards

The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) has funding available for college research day abstract presentations. This is targeted to any trainee (graduate student or post-doc) engaged in clinical or translational science. The clinical or translational impact of the work should be used in addition to standard scoring for your abstract competition.
The CCTS will offer up to one cash award for each college, and the award amount should be consistent with the size of other awards that are being given by your college, with final approval of the amount by our Administrative Director.* The CCTS should be acknowledged as a sponsor of the event in any marketing materials.
