Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awards

Congratulations to recipients of Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awards. This important program provides funds for the participation of early-career, meritorious minority scientists in the AACR Annual Meeting and Special Conferences. Scholars are chosen from both minority institutions and the larger bodies of universities, colleges, and research institutes, and individuals are selected on the basis of their qualifications, references from mentors, and an estimation of the potential professional benefit to the awardees. Eligible individuals are full-time graduate or medical students, residents, or clinical or postdoctoral fellows from groups considered to be underrepresented in cancer research (African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Native Pacific Islander/Hawaiian, and Alaska Native), as defined by the NCI.
