AACR Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awards

The AACR Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awards are intended to enhance the education and training of minority researchers and increase the visibility and recognition of minorities involved in cancer research. Eligible scientists are underrepresented minority full-time predoctoral (graduate or medical) students, medical residents, and postdoctoral and clinical fellows who are either engaged in cancer research or have training that could lead to contributions in the field, and are the presenters of meritorious abstracts at AACR conferences.
