The AACR offers Scholar-in-Training Awards to enhance the education and training of early career scientists by providing financial support for their attendance at AACR conferences and meetings. These awards are provided to offset a portion of the registration, travel, and subsistence expenses incurred in attending these programs. The number of awards available, award amounts, and application requirements vary by conference. Please visit the
meetings and workshops calendar for a list of upcoming programs and details on financial support available.
To be considered for an award, applicants must:
Submit a letter of recommendation from their program supervisor or department head that describes the quality of their clinical and/or experimental work.
The conference co-chairpersons or Program Committee will select the award recipients based on the qualitative rating of the abstract and the letter of recommendation. Award applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Notices will be sent to all applicants approximately three (3) weeks after the application deadline with the status of their application. Award recipients will be required to complete a certification form confirming their eligibility.
