Grants of up to $60,000 per year to USA, Canada, and International scholars with an MD, PhD, or degree equivalent to help laboratory and clinical scientists develop a career in ovarian cancer research. Funding is intended to support the scientific growth and academic success of awardees. The goal of the grant program is to attract junior investigators as well as established investigators into ovarian cancer research and to develop their potential as leaders.
Under the guidance of a mentor(s), the Scholar will explore diverse scientific approaches to specific research objectives and develop the skills required of an independent investigator. A successful candidate will provide a convincing argument for why the award will substantially enhance his/her career and development and how the mentor(s) will contribute toward the Scholar’s development as an independent researcher in ovarian cancer. The timeline given in the proposed research plan must be sufficient to support completion of a novel or promising study with proven research objectives.
The Scientific Scholar Award program will support opportunities for junior investigators to interact with senior scientists both locally and nationally. Ultimately, awardees are expected to complete the proposed research plan by the end of the award period and to submit an RO1-type grant that builds on the findings of the supported research.
Award recipients are encouraged to use results to publish findings and develop full-scale funding applications to national agencies. Applicants must budget at least half of each year’s award for salary support including fringe benefits. Applicants may budget remaining funds for materials, supplies, consumables, travel costs for scientific meetings, and other expenses as justified. It will be the responsibility of the candidate and mentor(s) to provide laboratory and/or office space and funding to support the proposed research plan.
