Young, talented investigators often have novel ideas and fresh approaches to scientific challenges. In order to attract new investigators to ovarian cancer research, each year we support multiple Scientific Scholars with $60,000 each for their proposed research. Each award recipient names a mentor who will help guide him or her through the process of becoming an established researcher.
Two-year grants at $120,000 each, Scientific Scholar Awards are intended to assist promising laboratory and clinical scientists in pursuing a career as an independent investigator in ovarian cancer research.
Funds are for direct costs only; institutional overhead and indirect costs will not be included in the award.
