​The AACR Lymphoma Research Fellowships represent a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct lymphoma research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to lymphoma.

These fellowships provide two-year grants of $110,000 to support the salary and benefits of the Fellow while working on mentored, lymphoma research. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.

It is anticipated that three fellowships will be funded.

Research Project Criteria

Research projects may be basic, clinical, translational, or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to lymphoma.

Eligibility Criteria

At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2018, applicants must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency within the past five years and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.

Applicants must have a medical and/or doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, DO, DC, ND, DDS, DVM, ScD, DNS, PharmD, or equivalent doctoral degree) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral or professional degree.

Applicants with a medical degree must have completed his or her most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years (time spent in medical specialty or subspecialty training is not considered part of medical residency and will be counted against the five-year window).

Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible.

Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Past grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.

Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR Lymphoma Research Fellowships but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.

Citizenship Requirements

There are no citizenship or geographic requirements. However, by submitting an application for this grant, an applicant applying from an institution located in a country in which they are not a citizen or a permanent resident assures that the visa status will provide sufficient time to complete the project and grant term at the institution from which they applied.
