Grants & Fellowships

The Prevent Cancer Foundation supports research grants & fellowships for cancer prevention and early detection. The application process is competitive, and proposals are assessed through an external peer review.

Research Grants & Fellowships

Since 1985, our peer-reviewed grants have been awarded to nearly 450 early-career scientists from more than 150 of the leading academic medical centers nationwide. The grants and fellowships selection process utilizes a research proposal review system similar to that of the National Institutes of Health.

Research proposals are reviewed by members of a distinguished Scientific Review Panel. Members of the panel are drawn from outstanding institutions such as:

  • National Cancer Institute
  • Lombardi Cancer Center
  • M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
  • Weill Cornell Medical College
  • Fox Chase Cancer Center
  • Johns Hopkins University

The Foundation supports research that demonstrates potential for impact on cancer prevention. The Foundation defines cancer prevention as the “reduction of cancer incidence through research, education and early detection.”
