The NCCN Foundation Young Investigator Awards (YIA) represent an ongoing program to provide two year grants of $75,000, per annum, for direct research expenses to promising young investigators across a broad range of oncology specialties and areas of interest. The awards may include funds up to $16,000 for data collection and research support (e.g., biostatistics) and $3,000 for IRB review and continuing review. Non-research related expenses will be covered to a maximum of 8% within the overall budget. A separate administrative allowance, in addition to the $75,000 per annum award, may be provided for the expenses of participating in the annual NCCN meeting during the second year of the award. The award is open to physicians, scientists, and nurses working in an oncology laboratory, clinical research or clinical setting, or cancer control program in one of the NCCN’s 21-member institutions, who (1) have a first full-time appointment as an Assistant Professor, Instructor, or an equivalent level, or (2) are MD’s, PhD’s or, for oncology nurses, have an appropriate level advanced degree. The award may be used to fund salary and benefits of the grant recipient, postdoctoral or clinical research fellows and/or research assistants; data collection and entry; patient costs; analysis; computer costs; necessary purchased services, e.g., surveys; and supplies.
