For over 35 years, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has been funding research grants and fellowships that demonstrate potential for impact on cancer prevention and early detection.

The goal of the Research Grants and Fellowships program is to identify and to provide funding for innovative projects with the potential to make substantial contributions to cancer prevention and early detection.

To advance the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s bold goal to reduce cancer deaths by 40% by 2035, the Foundation is proud to support research projects dedicated to increasing cancer prevention and early detection.

The grants and fellowships proposals are peer reviewed by an independent external Scientific Review Panel comprised of researchers and physician-scientists from outstanding cancer research institutions.

Use the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s Award Database to discover researchers and projects driving these key advancements in cancer prevention and early detection.
