*Funded Amount - The total value of funding that was awarded to a single group of research or training grants with relevance to a specific area of research and includes funding for some projects that may be minimally related to that type of cancer or area of research.

†Specific Amount - The "specific amount" in a single research project for a specific area of research is the portion of the total project funding for that project which corresponds to the percent relevance number for that area of research in the project.  This number can be found by multiplying the total funding amount by the percent relevance for the area of research in question.

‡ Not Categorized - Two award mechanisms are not classified using these categories: institutional research grants and an international grant.
