The OCTRI Scholars Program is designed to support early-career faculty in their transition to research independence. The mission of this program is to identify and support promising faculty who may benefit from OCTRI support and resources in their efforts to obtain independent research funding.
OCTRI Scholars are all researchers at OHSU or the Portland VA who have a current career development award. The Program promotes awareness of opportunities for mentored awards and assists faculty in developing strong grant applications.
