The Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation is accepting applications for the 2018 Alliance Scholar Awards. Applications must be submitted by 12:00 midnight (CST) on June 30.
Alliance Scholar Award applicants must be oncology junior faculty at Alliance institutions within five years of training (rank below associate professor) and have completed training in an oncology clinical specialty (medical, surgical, radiation, gynecologic, and so on). Additionally, proposals must include a letter of support from the appropriate Alliance Scientific Committee Chair to ensure the proposal is closely tied to the Alliance’s research agenda.
Alliance Scholar Award recipients will receive a two-year, non-renewable cancer research grant of $40,000 in direct costs per year, plus 10 percent in indirect costs for each of the two years. Successful applicants will be announced at the plenary session at the 2017 Alliance Fall Group Meeting held in Chicago, IL, November 2–4. Funding will begin approximately January 1, 2018. For application requirements and the link to the online submission portal, visit the Alliance Scholar Awards page on the Alliance website.
The Alliance/American College of Surgeons Clinical Research Program offers opportunities for surgeons to become involved in the research and development of evidence-based practices in surgical oncology.
