Scientific Scholar Awards

About the Program

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.

See Scientific Scholar awardees.

Program Details

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.
