Updated: V Scholars in cancer research, internal applications due June 15

Updated 6/7/12: The criteria for this funding opportunity have changed to include the acceptance of proposals for translational research projects. Therefore, we are extending the internal deadline to next Friday, June 15.


OHSU has been invited by the V Foundation to apply for their V Scholar Program, an opportunity for young, talented cancer researchers to gain support in their development into successful, independent investigators. The two-year, $200,000 grant will provide funds directly to young scientists who are developing their own independent laboratory projects. Proposals will be accepted for both fundamental and translational research projects.

Only one candidate may apply from OHSU. To be eligible, the candidate must have completed at least two years of fellowship training, hold a tenured track position (more than five years since joining faculty, but less than ten since terminal degree), and must not have been promoted to associate professor. If you intend to apply, please complete this limited submission form before the June 15, 2012 internal deadline.
