The USC Research and Innovation (R&I) Institutional Training Planning Award (ITPA) will assist in developing and enhancing USC’s institutional research infrastructure by preparing faculty to submit competitive institutional training applications to federal agencies like the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. Institutional training awards are the primary driver in improving a university’s ability to educate the next generation of skilled researchers and prepare them to pursue scientific careers and competitive research funding opportunities. To submit an institutional training grant application, faculty members must collect a wealth of data from university departments and mentors, conceptualize program administration, identify mentoring faculty, develop a comprehensive training plan, and design a program evaluation framework. Awards funded under this program will assist faculty in these planning activities and help them to prepare for proposal submission.
