Research Scholar Grants are intended to provide support for investigator-initiated projects across the cancer research continuum. These grants provide up to $165,000 per year for up to four years and typically cover the costs of salaries, consumable supplies, and other miscellaneous items required to conduct the proposed research. This funding mechanism supports basic, preclinical, clinical, epidemiological, psychosocial, behavioral research, and research in palliative care and symptom management.
Independent investigators within the first six years of an independent career, within a total of 12 years from the awarding of their terminal degree, and with no more than one R01-type grant are eligible to apply.
