Funding for the Clinical Research Scholars (KL2) Program

Funding for this Clinical Research Scholars Program is provided by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) through a National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) funded Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). Additional support comes from the Schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing.

Each scholar is provided with the following funding as a KL2 scholar (subject to change). NIH funded support is provided for a maximum of 2 years (24 months). If needed, a scholar will begin coverage under their department at the beginning of year 3.

  • Salary support up to $110,000 (for 75-90% effort) plus fringe
  • Up to $18,000 for tuition support plus $850 for fees
  • Research support varies per year based on funding. Usually between $5,000 – $8,000
  • Scholarly travel support up to $2,500 to support attendance to the annual ACTS conference and other travel related to the KL2 award

Ongoing support is contingent upon a continuation of funding, the scholar making adequate progress in the program, and completing program requirements.
