Funding & Training Opportunities

The LA CaTS Center offers funding opportunities annually (typically in the Spring) for research projects through our Pilot Grants Program and education training support through our Roadmap Scholar Program. The LA CaTS Center now offers two new funding and training programs, the Visiting Scholars Program and Community Scholar Program. In addition, the LA CaTS Center periodically may offer special funding opportunities (i.e. multi-institutional grants and other focus area specific grants). Announcements are made through the LA CaTS listserv, LA CaTS members and through this website. To receive funding opportunity announcements please sign up here.
