The Global Oncology Young Investigator Award from Conquer Cancer (The ASCO Foundation) supports promising investigators to encourage and promote quality research in clinical oncology. The Award is a mentored award and facilitates the transition from a trainee to an independent researcher. Applications are open to U.S. and international applicants. The award is intended to support global oncology in the following scenarios:

  1. Research by investigators in low resource settings on scientific questions specific to those settings. This research has potential to offer “reverse innovation” insights that could influence practice in a wide range of practice settings.
  2. Research by investigators in high resource settings on issues in resource-limited settings.
  3. Collaborative research (high and low resource investigators) on questions of shared concern, such as studying a cancer type that affects a small population in the U.S. but is common in another country.

Applicants must be:

  • a physicians (with MD, DO or other international equivalent degree);
  • licensed to practice medicine where the research will be conducted;
  • In the last year of training or during the first two years of a faculty/staff appointment (if in academic institution) or first two years of employment (if in a non-academic institution) at the time of grant submission, and must be within 10 years of terminal degree (MD, PhD or equivalent) at the time of application.
  • ASCO members.

The Award provides 50,000 USD for 1 year (up to 10% may be used for overheads).

Letters of intent are due on September 21, 2023. Full applications are due on January 11, 2024.
