We hope you and your loved ones are well given the difficult circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we are still planning to move forward with grant opportunities that are currently open to applications. However, we expect that the process will likely take longer than originally expected, but please know that our team is working diligently to ensure that the process will be completed at the earliest possible date.  

We are aware that many institutions have restricted access to labs and other resources, which may in turn impact our active grantees’ ability to fulfill their current grant obligations. We are closely monitoring potential disruptions and will contact individual grantees on an as-needed basis. However, if you have specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact [email protected].  


Since 1993, the AACR has awarded more than $460 million in grants to more than 800 scientists for research projects that aim to advance the understanding and treatment of cancer. Our grants support researchers domestically and abroad at every stage of their careers, representing a global commitment to cancer prevention, early detection, interception, and cure.

The AACR is proud to be the Scientific Partner of Stand Up To Cancer, a groundbreaking movement to accelerate innovative cancer research, get new therapies to patients quickly, and save lives.
