The Sontag Foundation supports people and organizations that make a significant and continuing impact in the lives of individuals and communities, primarily in the field of brain cancer research.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for its Distinguished Scientist Award. The award provides funding of up to $600,000 over four years (as well as additional support through the foundation) to early-career scientists who demonstrate outstanding promise in support of projects with the potential to generate new knowledge relating to the causes of, cures for, or the treatment of primary brain tumors/brain cancer.
To be eligible, applicants must hold a doctoral degree in a discipline that can be brought to bear on brain cancer. There is no citizenship requirement; however, applicants must hold a faculty position at a nonprofit academic or research institution in the United States or Canada.
See the Sontag Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
