AACR-QUADW FOUNDATION SARCOMA RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN MEMORY OF WILLIE TICHENOR
AACR-QuadW Foundation Sarcoma Research Fellowship in Memory of Willie Tichenor represents a joint effort to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct translational or clinical sarcoma research and to establish a successful career path in this field.
The fellowship provides a one-year grant of $50,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on a mentored sarcoma research project. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses. However, grant funds cannot be used to compensate for clinical practice with patients or for indirect costs.
Deadline: Nov. 8, 2022
Applicants must have a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.
At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2023, applicants must hold a mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent; have completed their most recent doctoral degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before July 1, 2018); and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.
Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years.
