The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer- and donor-powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research aimed at finding cures for childhood cancers and allowing survivors to long and healthy lives.
To advance this mission, the foundation is welcoming applications for its Fellowship Awards. Through the program, grants of up to $75,000 per year for up to two years, with up to an additional 30 percent of the salary amount for fringe benefits (total yearly maximum of $97,500), will be awarded in support of pediatric oncology researchers, with an opportunity for one additional year of funding based on need, significant accomplishment, and approved application. Fellows must have completed at least two years of fellowship training prior to becoming a St. Baldrick’s Fellow.
Letters of Intent are due July 10. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by August 28, 2020.
To be eligible, applicants should hold an MD or DO degree by the date the grant becomes effective and may not hold an appointment of assistant professor or above. Applicants must have a fellowship mentor who provides supervision, facilities, and research support at an American Board of Pediatrics-approved fellowship program in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. Principal investigators affiliated with U.S.-based academic, medical, or nonprofit institutions are eligible to apply, although applicants need not be a citizen of the United States.
