The DRIVEN program (Driving Research: An Interdisciplinary, Vibrant, Engaged Network) is a partnership striving to develop a network of diverse and accomplished health scientists as part of a vibrant scientific community. Seeking to increase research successes for people of diverse backgrounds with a focus on diversity supplements and other funding opportunities is a large focus of this community. Join DRIVEN to stay connected to events, resources, and more!

As part of the DRIVEN Scholars program, the CCTS Training Academy can support up to two (2) applications from across the Partner Network to respond to the NIH’s program announcement for administrative supplements to improve the diversity of the translational research workforce. The CCTS is accepting letters of interest from early career scholars committed to conducting translational research that addresses health disparities and/or diseases/conditions that disproportionately affect the Deep South. In partnership with DRIVEN, this opportunity will support Scholars for a period of two years with 75% salary support, up to a maximum of $100,000 annually. LOIs are due July 31, 2021.
