Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Invites Letters of Intent Through Psychosocial Grant Program

LOI Deadline:  July 18,2014

The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for two categories of grants through its Psychosocial Grant program.

1) Psychosocial Launch Grants  are designed for early career researchers within seven years of receiving their terminal degree. Grants of up to $100,000 over two years will be awarded in support of studies that aim to explain and/or improve psychosocial outcomes of individuals affected by childhood cancer.

2) Psychosocial Family Impact Grants are designed for established investigators. Grants of up to $300,000 over three years will be awarded in support of studies that aim to explain and/or improve psychosocial outcomes of those affected by childhood cancer. Grants are designed to fund researchers with novel approaches to understanding the psychosocial aspects of pediatric cancer and whose proposals will have clinically significant impact.

The foundation will only consider LOIs from United States or Canadian nonprofit institutions. However, the principal investigator need not be a U.S. citizen.
