The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer- and donor-powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research aimed at finding cures for childhood cancers and allowing survivors to long and healthy lives.
In support of this mission, St. Baldrick’s is inviting applications for its Fellowship Awards. Through the program, grants of up to $75,000 per year for up to two years, with an additional 30 percent for fringe benefits (total yearly maximum of $97,500), will be awarded in support of pediatric oncology research. (There is an opportunity for one additional year of funding based on need and demonstrated accomplishment.) Fellows must have completed at least two years of training prior to becoming a St. Baldrick’s Fellow.
Letters of Intent are due July 12. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by August 30, 2019.
To be eligible, applicants should hold an MD or DO degree by the date the grant becomes effective and may not hold an appointment at the level of assistant professor or above. Applicants also must have a fellowship mentor who provides supervision, facilities, and research support at an American Board of Pediatrics-approved fellowship program in pediatric hematology/oncology. Principal investigators affiliated with U.S.-based academic, medical, or nonprofit institutions are eligible to apply, though applicants need not be citizen of the U.S.
