Career training (K series) awardees often need additional project support to transition to independence. The opportunity would support limited scope projects that could include pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analyses of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. This opportunity will provide K awardees support for short-term, limited scope projects that will strengthen their competitiveness for a subsequent R01, or equivalent, and may provide preliminary data to support subsequent applications.
