  1. Type all required information into the appropriate fields on the on-line application.
  2. Upload Biosketch and at least one (1) letter of recommendation from your institution or letter of recommendation from a current CSCTR member.
  3. Recommendation letter guidelines:
    • Provide in the letter information on the applicant’s significant independent investigative achievements, or, if the applicant has functioned as part of a large group of investigators or as a collaborator with an established investigator, make clear the individual’s role and independence;
    • It is useful to cite major articles that document the applicant’s independent or central contribution to the work;
    • Up to three articles may be submitted in support of the applicant;
    • It is useful to list recognition of scientific achievements such as awards, prizes, grants, support or scientific sessions which the applicant chaired. Other evidence of scholarly achievement might include educational and administrative roles within the divisions and departments. As a guideline, “investigation” can be defined in its broadest sense. Holding a national, federal, or private grant is not a prerequisite.
