The American Cancer Society awards research grants and fellowships to promising scientists early in their careers who have unique hypotheses for cancer prevention and study, fostering the next generation of cancer research and creating a strong foundation of preliminary evidence to make scientific advancements. ACS also sponsors grants that support clinical faculty seeking to develop their ability to conduct independent research. Recently added grant mechanisms are open to mid and senior-level investigators to develop new ideas or establish new methodologies.
Post-docs and faculty from all disciplines are welcome.
