  • Requisits
    Eligible applicants are independent investigators who are at the start of their scientific career (i.e., junior faculty) and are at the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent, with explanation). Due to the highly accomplished nature of the junior faculty who typically apply to Concern Foundation for Cancer Research, successful proposals are usually from investigators who have been in their independent position and directing their own research program for more than one year.
    Priority will be given to proposals from investigators who are well-regarded by their institution and have yet to obtain significant outside funding for their work.
    Concern Foundation accepts grant applications from institutions in the United States and abroad. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement.
    $60,000 a year
    1 or 2 years.
    Application begins with completion of a brief pre-eligibility questionnaire (deadline Sept 6). If eligible, applicants will receive email notification with request to submit a Letter of Intent (deadline Sept 8).
