CTSI is committed to combatting all forms of racism and bias and to ensuring equity in our policies and practices. This link provides some resources you may wish to use in your reflections on the sources of racial bias as it relates to our engagement at Duke as well as in our broader social contexts.
The Community of Scholars stands in solidarity against racist sentiments, actions and policies that propagate injustices throughout our nation. We join many voices at Duke condemning the ongoing acts of violence, discrimination and inequity against Black people. The Community of Scholars supports deeply honest dialogue and reflection, as well as behaviors and actions leading to accountability and meaningful change.
Did you know? CoS also publishes announcements and events in the CTSI newsletter coming to your mailbox twice a month. Read it, don’t delete it!

November 1, 2021 Letter of Intent Due: Duke CTSA Research Career Development Award Program (Duke CTSA KL2) is now accepting applications: The Duke CTSA KL2 provides skilled and personalized mentoring, a coordinated and tailored scientific and career development curriculum, and the opportunity to conduct clinical or translational (bench to bedside) research. The KL2 program is particularly committed to increasing diversity of the research workforce. Therefore, we have set a goal that at least 50% of KL2 scholars will be from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (UREGs). Members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
Up to four Scholars will be awarded 75% total protected effort for 3 years, up to $20,000/year for research expenses, and up to $2,500/year for travel to professional meetings. Benefits are contingent upon available funding. Funding will start July, 2022. Applications are due November 29, 2021.
Individuals considering applying to the Duke CTSA KL2 are strongly encouraged to submit a Letter of Intent by November 1, 2021 via MyResearchProposal.
If applying to the Duke CTSA KL2, please consider the REACH Equity and KL2 Application Preparation Program (REKAPP). REKAPP is a 6-8 week program in which participants will work with a faculty member and a small peer group on specific parts of the KL2 application. Space is limited, and applications are due August 16th.
