Researcher Resources


The CTSI can provide investigators with letters of support to strengthen their grant applications. Proposal types for which the CTSI can provide letters of support include but are not limited to:

  • Research Proposals
  • Training Grants
  • Conferences

Letters of support are subject to review, editing and approval and will typically be signed by the Co-Directors of the CTSI. Letters also can be requested from specific CTSI program areas or specific CTSI institutional partners and are subject to the same review process.

Requests for letters of support should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the preferred grant submission date.

Questions? Please contact the Grants Submission Unit at gsu@mednet.ucla.edu.
