Grants to USA investigators at medical, academic, or research institutions for pediatric cancer research. Certain applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for investigation into the prevention, cause, treatment, and cure of cancer in children and adolescents. Topics of interest include survivorship, outcomes and quality of life, supportive care, children and adolescents, epidemiology and pediatric cancer predispositions, precision medicine, and alternative and complementary therapies.

There are five grant categories:

Scholar (Career Development) Award: This is an early-career award. The Scholar award is intended to develop the independent pediatric cancer research careers of highly qualified investigators, not to support well established or senior investigators.

International Scholar Award: This program is intended to train researchers from low and middle-income countries (as classified by the World Bank) to prepare them to fill specific stated needs in an area of childhood cancer research upon returning to their country of origin. Applicants must be early-career and possibly hold a junior faculty-level position at an academic or non-profit research institution or laboratory and must have held such a position for no longer than five years at the time of the application deadline.

Research Grant Awards: These grants are for specific one-year research projects which are hypothesis driven and may be either laboratory, clinical, or epidemiological in nature.

Supportive Care Research Grant Awards: These grants are for specific one-year research projects which are hypothesis-driven and focus on areas related to the supportive care of children and adolescents with cancer. Examples include but are not limited to: studies related to symptom clusters, patient-reported outcomes or quality of life, health communication, health promotion, and psychosocial support across the trajectory from diagnosis to survivorship or end-of-life care.

Summer Fellowship Awards: St. Baldrick’s offers Summer Fellowship Awards, funding stipends for students to work in a pediatric oncology setting for a summer.
