Grants of up to $50,000 to researchers affiliated with USA qualified institutions for research in the field of pediatric oncology. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to increase the institution's capacity to conduct clinical research and trials. Priority is given to institutions with high needs and low philanthropic support in geographical areas where St. Baldrick’s funds are raised. Institutions that do not currently receive other St. Baldrick’s grants are also given preference.

Infrastructure grants are designed to provide an infusion of funds to enable an institution to acquire the personnel (i.e., a clinical research associate) or resources it needs to reach its potential in broader clinical trial participation. 

For the 2020 Fall cycle St. Baldrick’s will only be accepting Infrastructure LOIs/Applications requesting support for Clinical Research Associate positions. These grants are not for a specific research project, but rather for resources to allow more research to be done. They support institutions with the potential for more participation in childhood cancer clinical trials, but which currently lack necessary resources (support for Clinical Research Associates).

Reasonable travel costs, publication, and meeting-related poster printing costs are allowable on Infrastructure Grant awards.
