The Faculty Retention Award is intended to provide short-term faculty retention funds to highly promising faculty currently underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, social sciences and community health sciences, based on their need and likelihood of ultimately securing independent grant support.

The Emerging Scientist Award is intended to enhance the retention of individuals currently underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, social sciences and community health sciences by providing partial support (two-year period) for the development and transition of Junior Faculty from career development grant support to independent investigator-initiated research grant support.

The Bridge Funding Award is intended to significantly increase competitiveness for mainstream federal funding (e.g. NIH, CDC, HRSA) in minority health and health disparities research projects that involve the development of novel medical applications leading to improved patient care practices, particularly for diseases that disproportionately affect ethnic groups in South Los Angeles area and surrounding communities. To this end, the Bridge Funding Award serves to support the retention of CDU research faculty engaged in minority health and health disparities science.
