Young Investigator Awards

The goal of the Young Investigator Awards is to enable promising young investigators to initiate successful scientific careers.

The Young Investigator Awards are research grants to be awarded to men and women during the first two years of their initial faculty appointment (instructor, assistant professor) who have not yet received significant external support at the time of submission. These awards are designed to nurture young scientists in the pursuit of independent hypotheses, and to enable them to develop the preliminary data necessary to successfully compete for major research grants.

The award is $75,000, to be awarded in two installments. The Cancer Research Foundation publishes guidelines for the submission of applications each year in the Spring.  Applications are due in time to be reviewed at the fall Cancer Research Foundation Board Meeting.
