Collaborative Pediatric Cancer Research Awards
A Collaborative Pediatric Cancer Research Awards Program streamlines the grant process for researchers, reviewers, and organizations. It is like the Common Application that the Ivy League schools use. Members include Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally), The Truth 365, Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation, Open Hands Overflowing Hearts, and Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer; national nonprofit organizations dedicated to eliminating childhood cancer through innovative research in pediatric oncology. Members of the Collaborative may choose to co-fund or individually fund a grant. Last year, the Collaborative awarded $3 million through 55 research grants. Each organization provides its own funding for grants it selects to fund and should be recognized as the donor. The Collaborative should not be recognized as a donor. Rally is the administrator of the Collaborative and the grants.
We invite letters of intent for 2020 funding of pediatric cancer projects in the following areas:
- Basic Science Research
- Clinical Translational Research
- Alternative Therapy Studies (using natural agents, integrated, personalized or holistic approaches)
- Quality of Life, Palliative Care, and Survivorship Studies
- Designated funding for medulloblastoma, retinoblastoma, AML, lymphoma, Li-Fraumeni Syndrome (also known as SBLA Syndrome), and under-studied disease types; however, all types of childhood cancer will be considered.
Deadline for Letter of Intent: Oct. 9, 2019
