Grants to Israel experienced researchers affiliated with an institution to support cancer-related studies. Funding is intended to offer a unique research opportunity and to promote productivity in cancer research. The award will support a senior full-time faculty member, or individual in an equivalent position, who has made outstanding contributions to cancer research and who will continue to provide leadership in his or her research area. Grants may be used for salary support or laboratory support, or a combination of both.

Special Conditions:

  1. The sponsoring institution must attest that the candidate is unusually well-qualified for this grant.
  2. The sponsoring institution must provide assurance that a faculty member holding this position will have all the rights and privileges normally provided at the institution and that the grantee will be provided with the physical facilities and administrative services required to conduct the research for which the grant is awarded.
  3. If the grantee resigns, is discharged, is appointed to any administrative position (such as but not limited to, department head or dean), retires, or dies, the ICRF will automatically void the grant and terminate funding. Failure by the sponsoring institution to notify the ICRF of such occurrence will allow the ICRF to recover funds in toto.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The amount of the award will be a maximum of $100,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

The Research Professorship Grant is awarded for a period of five (5) years.

In order to renew the grant for another 5-year term (contingent upon the availability of funds), the current recipient will be required to submit a complete new Research Professorship Grant application during the fifth year of the award, including a summary of progress, for the next review process and compete against other eligible candidates.

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.)

The applicant must be at the rank of Full Professor or equivalent and must have at least eight years of experience beyond the doctoral degree. With the exception of extraordinary circumstances, the applicant must be no less than five years from the usual and customary age of retirement at his or her institution.

An application for an ICRF Research Professorship must originate jointly with the institution and the proposed awardee and must describe fully all proposed research and teaching activities. For emeritus faculty, the applicant's department chair must write a letter formally committing space and administrative and scientific infrastructure for the duration of the grant. If an ICRF grant is awarded, funding will not be continued, if this commitment is withdrawn.

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. ICRF does not allow funds to be used for travel.

Pre-Application Information:

- Application Received by the Fund in New York: December 31, 2020, 11:59 PM (EST)
- Notification of Decision: July 1, 2021
- Activation of Award: September 1, 2021

A single investigator may not hold two ICRF grants concurrently. If you are currently the recipient of ICRF funding, you may only apply for another ICRF grant, if the start date for the new application falls after the termination date for current funding.
