Bridge to Success Award for Early Career Investigators

The Bridge to Success for Early Career Investigators awards are designed to provide ‘bridge’ funding to promising early-career sleep scientists who have applied for a career development award such as a K-award grant from the NIH, a Career Development Award from the VA, or an equivalent career development grant from another federal or non-federal entity.

Bridge to Success Award for Mid-Career / Senior Investigators

The Bridge to Success for Mid-Career/Senior Investigators awards are targeted to mid-level and senior investigators in sleep and biological rhythms who need ‘bridge’ funding while re-applying for research support.
