St. Baldrick's Fellow

The Foundation funds years 3-4 (or 4-5) of a pediatric oncology research fellowship, with an opportunity for one additional year of funding. In the past, Fellows were funded for years 2-3; this change is to focus on fellows with a more research-oriented career path. This mechanism is designed to support a fellow’s salary & benefits only.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants should hold an M.D., D.O. or an M.D./Ph.D. degree by the date the grant becomes effective.
  • Applicants must be employed by an academic or non-profit research institution or laboratory.
  • Fellows must have completed at least two years of fellowship training prior to becoming a St. Baldrick’s Fellow.
  • 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.
  • Applicants need not be American citizens; however, they must be associated with an American Board of Pediatrics approved fellowship program.
