Funding Opportunities

American Cancer Society Supports Early Career Clinicians’ Move into Clinical Science

The American Cancer Society started a grant program to support early career clinicians aiming to become clinician scientists.

The Clinician Scientist Development Grant will provide funding to support clinical faculty who see patients to be mentored and participate in research training to aid their development as independent clinician scientists.

“These grants were created to support the ACS’s commitment to fostering the careers of clinician scientists,” said William Chambers, senior vice president, extramural research for the American Cancer Society. “Grantees will be free to pursue research questions across the cancer research continuum of relevance to improving health.”

Applicants must be full-time clinicians who are within the first six years of their initial faculty appointment. Awards range from three to five years for a maximum $135,000. The grants cover direct costs plus 8% allowable indirect costs per year.
