A Collaborative Pediatric Cancer Research Awards Program Grant Funding Opportunity in Pediatric Oncology
A Collaborative Pediatric Cancer Research Awards Program streamlines the grant process for researchers, reviewers, and organizations. It is like the Common Application that the Ivy League schools use. Members include Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation/The Truth 365, Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, Batcole Foundation, Open Hands Overflowing Hearts, Luke Tatsu Johnson Foundation, and Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer, national nonprofit organizations dedicated to eliminating childhood cancer through innovative research in pediatric oncology. Members of the Collaboration may choose to co-fund or individually fund a grant. Each organization provides its own funding for grants it selects to fund and will be recognized as the donor in publications. Rally is the administrator of the grants.
- Fellows, Research Scientists, Instructors and Professors with MD or DO and/or PhD degrees may apply.
- Principal investigators do not need to be U.S. citizens.
- Lead research institutions do not need to be located in the U.S.
The following will not be reviewed:
- Grants that have no direct relevance to pediatric cancer nor fall within the scope of the Collaborative Grant Application Guidelines.
- Proposals for funding of infrastructure programs or management of clinical trials.
- Incomplete applications and/or applications received after the deadline.
- Fellowship Grants – Grants are for one or two years of support. At the end of the award you may apply for additional funding the next grant cycle. Each funded grant will be awarded up to $50,000 per year.
- Young Investigator and Independent Investigator Grants – Grants are for one or two years of support. At the end of the award you may apply for additional funding the next grant cycle. Each funded grant will be awarded up to $50,000 per year.

Young investigators are up to five years post fellowship and independent investigators are more than five years post fellowship. A consortium is three or more institutions collaborating on the proposed research project with one lead institution housing the principal investigator.
