Infrastructure Grant

St. Baldrick’s Foundation

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #125838

Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of up to $50,000 to researchers affiliated with qualified USA institutions to advance research in the field of pediatric oncology. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to increase the institution's capacity to conduct childhood cancer clinical trials by acquiring the personnel and resources needed.

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. Applications to support Clinical Research Associate (CRA) type positions are preferred. 

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. The applicant should indicate how ongoing personnel costs will be funded in future years.
