2017 Alliance scholar awards

The Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation invites applications for the 2017 Alliance Scholar Awards! Applications must be submitted by midnight CST June 30, 2016.
Alliance Scholar Award applicants must be oncology junior faculty at Alliance institutions within five (5) years of training (rank below Associate Professor), who have completed training in an oncology clinical specialty (e.g., medical, surgical, radiation, gynecologic, etc.). Additionally, proposals must include a letter of support from the appropriate Alliance Scientific Committee Chair to ensure the proposal is closely tied to the research agenda of the Alliance.  
Alliance Scholar Award recipients will receive a two-year, non-renewable cancer research grant of $40,000 direct costs per year, plus 10 percent indirect costs each year for two years. Successful applicants will be announced at the 2016 Alliance Fall Group Meeting held in Chicago November 3-5.  Funding will begin approximately January 1, 2017.
