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

For over 30 years, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has been funding grants and fellowships that demonstrates potential for impact on cancer prevention/early detection. The goal of the Research Program is to provide funding for innovative projects expected to lead to future funding from other peer-reviewed sources. 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.”
