The UCLA Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute (CDI), with generous funding support from the Today's and Tomorrow's Children Fund (TTCF), offers one year bridge funding to support research projects previously submitted to extramural agencies/foundations that are scientifically sound but not yet funded. This funding program is available to faculty members with primary or secondary appointments in the Department of Pediatrics.
Selection Process: Applications will be reviewed for merit by a committee and chosen for the possibility of presentation to the TTCF philanthropic members for final selection of funding and level of funding. This final process will entail working closely with the Development Office towards being named the finalist and bear the title of TTCF Scholar.
Please see CDI TTCF Bridge funding RFA for eligibility criteria and application submission details.
