AACR offers various funding opportunities for young investigators throughout the year.
Applications must be completed online using the proposalCENTRAL website, with one paper copy submitted to the AACR office. Program guidelines and application instructions are available below and on the proposalCENTRAL website.
AACR Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to postdoctoral and clinical research fellows who are working at an academic, medical or research institution.
Fellowships support the salary and benefits of the fellow, with partial funds (up to 25 percent of the total grant) permitted to be designated to direct research expenses.
Pathway to Leadership Grants
Pathway to Leadership Grants support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows in the first five years of their fellowship at the start of the grant term, who have not already secured a full-time tenure track assistant professor position (or equivalent). The grants provide up to five years of support in two phases. The initial mentored phase lasts up to two years, during which time recipients are expected to work closely with their mentor(s) to develop their research. During the subsequent three years, recipients are expected to secure independent research positions.
AACR Fellows Grants support innovative research by a meritorious young investigator by presenting the fellow with research funds to pursue an independent line of investigation within the context of his/her current fellowship placement. These grants provide a "bridge" between a training and an independent position, offering an opportunity for young investigators to develop a new direction for his/her research program that otherwise may not have been possible in the absence of this funding.
