This award provides up to three years of support (up to 20 percent FTE per year), as well as travel support for meetings required as part of the Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP) Award. Indirect costs are not allowed.
U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents (must have obtained permanent residency prior to the time of application), and Canadian citizens are welcome to apply.
The CRSP Award is intended to facilitate the initiation of a career supporting multi-center clinical studies, including observational, translational, and interventional clinical research.
NOTE: The 2023 CRSP Award guidelines have a number of updates to make the program more accessible to principal investigators (PIs) with developing clinical studies. Of note:
- Canadian applicants are encouraged to apply.
- Accommodations can be made in the budget for applicants with existing career development awards that preclude a 20% level of effort (LOE) commitment.
- Applicants should be actively participating in prospective clinical studies (not necessarily an interventional trial), with the intent to develop this work into a multi-center study during the CRSP project period.

Applicants must submit a letter of intent (LOI) for review by the CRSP Application Review Committee. Submitting a full application to awards.cff.org will be by invitation only after approval of the LOI.
