Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $45,000 per year to Israel early-career medical researchers affiliated with nonprofit institutions to support clinical or basic cancer research. Investigations must be conducted in Israel. Funding is intended to support young scientists who are in a formative career phase and who demonstrate exceptional potential for contributions to cancer research as investigators.

The RCDA is a special grant for enhancement of the research capabilities of young Israeli scientists in the formative phase of their careers who have demonstrated outstanding potential for contribution to cancer research as independent investigators. The awards are available for persons with research potential who need additional experience in a scientific environment that is conducive to the development of a career in independent research. The award is not intended for untried investigators or for those already established as independent investigators. The award is not intended simply to substitute one source of salary support for another for an individual who is already conducting full-time research, nor is it a mechanism for providing institutional support.

Because this funding opportunity targets development of early career investigators, it is important, and requisite, that a formal mentoring program be established for the investigator. There should be a primary mentor who should be available for guidance at all times. It is preferable that the primary mentor be at the same institution as the investigator. In addition, there should be a small mentoring committee formed of additional senior members who will meet with the investigators quarterly to evaluate progress and give guidance. All RCDA applications must include letters of support from the primary mentor and members of the mentoring committee. 

In the review of applications for scientific merit, attention is given to the candidate's prior training and experience, career potential, proposed research, environment, and other related information. The application must demonstrate that the award will enhance the candidate's development as an independent investigator.

Estimated Size of Grant:

RCDAs award a maximum stipend of $45,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

RCDAs are awarded, contingent upon the availability of funds, for a period of three (3) years.

Recipients are permitted and encouraged to reapply once for an additional three (3) years of support, provided that they are still within five (5) years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the requested beginning date of the award.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Funds for cancer research are available to citizens of Israel, both native-born and those who have settled. Funds are not available to visiting scientists. (Proof of Israeli citizenship must be furnished upon request.)

Relationship to Institution:
Although individuals are considered as the awardee, awards are made to eligible institutions on behalf of the awardee. The awardee is an employee of the institution to which the award is made and his or her status, title, salary and staff privileges are determined by the institution according to its established policies for individuals holding 12-month appointments, except as otherwise set out in this statement.

Eligibility:

1. Nomination by Institution
Candidates must be nominated by a public or private nonprofit institution engaged in health- related research and located in Israel. The application must originate jointly with the institution and the proposed nominee, and must describe fully all proposed research and teaching activities. The endorsement (signature) of the head of the institution or other person authorized to commit the institution to abide by the requirements of the ICRF is required.

2. Experience
Candidates must have a doctoral degree, at least three (3) years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience, and be within five (5) years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the requested beginning date of the award. An individual who has achieved professional recognition, as evidenced by substantial independent research accomplishments, significant number of publications of high quality in scientific or professional journals, or the attainment of senior faculty or equivalent status, is considered to have achieved the objective of this program and to be ineligible.

3. Concurrent Applications
An RCDA application may not be submitted concurrently with another research career development-type application that would duplicate the provisions of the RCDA. Other development awards considered to be duplicative include clinical investigator awards, academic and teacher investigator awards, and postdoctoral and senior fellowships.

Only one (1) grant application per person will be accepted for each submission deadline.

No overhead, clerical or other administrative charges can be made by the institution against the award funds. The ICRF also does not allow its funds to be used for work performed outside of Israel.

Pre-Application Information:

Timetable:
- Application Received by the Fund in New York: December 31, 2019 11:59 PM (EST)
- Notification of Decision: July 1, 2020
- Activation of Award: September 1, 2020

During the period of the award, the institution is expected to reduce or defer demands for teaching, service or committee duties that do not contribute directly to the development of the candidate's research career.

Fiscal Requirements for Institutions: A separate account must be maintained for each award. This account must be available for audit at any time by representatives of the ICRF.

Awards for projects involving human subjects and/or animals require prior review and approval by the appropriate institutional committee. That written approval must be submitted along with the ICRF application. The review date should be recent; certification is invalid if the review date precedes the submission date by more than one year.
