On behalf of the University of Tennessee Medical Center Cancer Institute/University Health System, in conjunction with the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine (UTGSM), it is with great excitement that we are announcing the first call for grant applications specifically related to cancer research on our campus.
As a result of a philanthropic initiative started in 2015, we are now in a position to accept grant applications for Cycle One of research funding. For this cycle, there are three categories of grants based on the size and scope of your project: one grant will be awarded at $40,000, two grants will be awarded at $20,000 each, and two grants at $10,000 each. The project can extend over 1 or 2 years.
The details of the grant process and the grant application are available for download here:
Grant applications are due by Friday, March 13th, at 5:00 PM. Note however that the completed application in PDF format should be submitted to Melissa Weaver at least 5 days before the deadline to ensure compliance with UTHSC grant submission policy.
The grant applications will be reviewed by the Grant Review Subcommittee, which is a subcommittee of the Cancer Research Endowment Scientific Review Committee. This subcommittee will make recommendations for funding to the Cancer Research Endowment Oversight Committee. Applicants will be informed of the results of the grant review by Friday, May 15th.
If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact Melissa Weaver or Jon Wall.
