Mentored Research Scholar Grant

NOTE: This mechanism is being phased out. Only resubmissions will be reviewed in 2018. Applicants are encouraged to explore other American Cancer Society grant mechanisms .

The mentored research scholar grant provides support for mentored research and training to full-time junior faculty, typically within the initial 4 years of their first independent appointment. The goal is for these beginning investigators to become independent researchers as either clinician scientists or cancer control and prevention researchers. Awards are for up to 5 years and for up to $135,000 per year (direct costs), plus 8% allowable indirect costs. A maximum of $10,000 per year for the mentor(s) (regardless of the number of mentors) is included in the $135,000.

Application Deadline: October 15, 2018
Grant application materials become available in early July.
