AACR Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awards
AACR is pleased to administer this important award program that is
supported by a generous grant from the Center to Reduce Cancer Health
Disparities (CRCHD) of the National Cancer Institute, and provides funds
for the participation of meritorious minority scientists in AACR
meetings and conferences. These awards are intended to enhance the
education and training of minority researchers and to increase the
visibility and recognition of minorities involved in cancer research.
Eligible scientists are full-time predoctoral (graduate or medical)
students or residents, clinical or postdoctoral fellows, and junior
faculty who are either engaged in cancer research or who have the
training and the potential to make contributions to this field. This
program applies only to racial/ethnic minority groups that have been
defined by the NCI as being traditionally underrepresented in cancer and
biomedical research (African American/Black, Alaska Native, Hispanic
American, Native American, and Native Pacific Islander.) Only citizens
of the United States or Canada or scientists who are permanent residents
in these countries may receive one of these awards.
