The National Cancer Institute (NCI) career development (K) awards program includes a broad range of funding mechanisms and provides scientists with support to further develop their cancer research careers, transition to independence, expand their existing research programs, or mentor junior investigators. The K awards are a significant component of NCI’s training effort.

Highlights of the NCI K Program in the past two fiscal years include:

  • The total Research Career Award mechanism increased by 4 percent in FY 2016
  • The number of Research Career Awards increased by 2 between FY 2015 and FY 2016
  • NCI funded 77 awards for the NIH Pathway to Independence Program
