Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International researchers to conduct research related to cancers that affect children. Funding is intended for clinical, translational, and basic research to advance knowledge on pediatric cancer. Funds may be used for the salary and benefits of the fellow and research-related expenses.

The AACR-Day One Biopharmaceuticals Pediatric Cancer Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct pediatric cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding must have direct applicability to pediatric cancer and may be basic, translational, or clinical in nature. 

Each fellowship provides a grant to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on a mentored pediatric cancer 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.

• Hold a mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent. If eligibility is based on a future position, the position must be confirmed at the time of application, and cannot be contingent upon receiving this grant.
• Have completed their most recent doctoral degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before November 1, 2017; the formal date of receipt of doctoral degree is the date the degree was conferred, as indicated on their diploma and/or transcript). Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical training - whichever date is later - within the past five years.
• Work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.

There are no citizenship or geographic requirements. However, by submitting an application for this grant, an applicant applying from an institution located in a country in which they are not a citizen or a permanent resident assures that the visa status will provide sufficient time to complete the project and grant term at the institution from which they applied.

An exception to the five-year window may be granted for parental leave or other well-justified leave from research for pressing personal or family situations of generally less than 12 months duration. Applicants whose experience exceeds the maximum of five years but who believe they are eligible must contact AACR’s SRGA before submitting an application to verify their eligibility.

Grant funds cannot be used for indirect costs.

Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible. Postdoctoral fellows conducting research in a U.S. government laboratory (e.g., NIH, CDC, FDA, etc.) are not eligible.
