($110,000/year, 3 year minimum, with an opportunity for two additional years). This award is for a Scholar’s salary & benefits only; adjustments may be allowed if the Scholar receives other funds after applying, upon Foundation approval.

• Research grants: These one-year grants are for specific research projects which are hypothesis driven and may be either laboratory or clinical research. While the averagegrant is $100,000 or less, the proposed budget must be realistic for the project.

• Supportive Care Research grants: These are for research projects which are hypothesis driven and focus on areas related to the supportive care of children and adolescents with cancer. Examples include studies related to symptom clusters, patient-reported outcomes/quality of life, health communication, health promotion, and psychosocial support across the trajectory from diagnosis to survivorship or end-of-life care. While the average grant is $50,000 or less, the proposed budget must be realistic for the project.
