Sign up for Propel to take part in a growing tradition of research excellence

The academic-year-long Propel Research Mentorship Program will host its third cohort beginning this fall. As the 2023-2024 Propel application deadline approaches next week on Friday, August 4, it’s a great time to reflect on this young program’s growing track record of success. Mentees who participated in the first two Propel cohorts have garnered more than $10.5 million in new award funding. Propel mentees from the most recent cohort that wrapped up in April 2023 have already submitted more than a dozen new proposals to funding agencies. Propel has helped USC’s outstanding early career faculty rack up all these wins in only two years, making the program’s impact clear. The Office of the Vice President for Research encourages all new and early-career faculty to take advantage of this opportunity to get a boost in research funding success, and apply for Propel today. Applications are due by next Friday, August 4.
