American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant Opportunity for Junior Faculty

American Cancer Society - Institutional Research Grant (ACS-IRG) Pilot Projects are designed to provide seed money (up to $30,000 for 12 months) to support junior faculty members with an interest in cancer research who do not have any nationally competitive research grant support.   

Recipients of IRG pilot project grants are not required to be United States (U.S.) citizens. However, any applicant for IRG pilot project funding who is not a U.S. citizen must hold a visa that will allow him or her to remain in the U.S. long enough to complete the IRG pilot project. Proof of visa is required with application.

Applications are due no later than 5:00 pm on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 to researchadmin@karmanos.org.

Please visit http://www.karmanos.org/ACSIRG for detailed instructions, application template and additional information.
