To that end, CCF is accepting applications for its Global Oncology Young Investigator Award. Through the program, a single grant of up to $50,000 will be awarded to an early-career investigator in support of global oncology research. “Global oncology” as defined by the foundation implies an approach to the practice of oncology that acknowledges the reality of limited resources in most parts of the world. Projects therefore need to be a research exercise – identifying training models, researching their outcomes, analyzing the outcomes of those models to select the most effective curriculum, and/or researching the cost of creating sustainable models where they do not exist.
To be eligible, applicants must be an ASCO member, have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, DO, or equivalent doctoral degrees) and be in the last year of his/her training or during the first two years of a faculty/staff appointment (if an academic institution) or first two years of employment (if a non-academic institution) at the time of proposal submission.
