Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Israel institutions to support cancer-related research carried out by full professors. Funding is intended to offer a unique research opportunity and to promote productivity in cancer research. The award will support a full-time, senior 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.

The research experience and interest of the applicant may be in either basic biological science or in clinical research and must relate to cancer.

The award may be utilized for (a) salary support, or (b) laboratory support, or a combination of both.

Special Conditions:
  1. The home institution must be satisfied that the candidate is unusually well-qualified to fill the position for which the grant is being sought.
  2. The position will carry all of the rights and privileges normally provided at the institution.
  3. The awardee will be provided with the physical facilities and administrative services required to conduct the research for which the grant is awarded.
  4. The awardee is required to be a spokesperson for the ICRF and for cancer research, and will accept the role of speaking on behalf of the ICRF and using the title as appropriate in professional appearances and publications. Speaking appearances will be arranged to be mutually-convenient to the awardee and the ICRF.
  5. If the awardee 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 award and terminate funding. Failure by the institution to notify the Fund of such occurrence will allow the ICRF to recover funds in toto.
The funds are to be used for actual direct expenses (salaries, supplies, etc.) connected with the project.

Estimated Size of Grant:

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

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. If the current recipient is not selected once again, then the award will terminate at the end of the fifth funding year.

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. 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.

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.

Biohazards and Protection of Human Subjects and/or Animals:
Safeguarding the rights and welfare of human subjects and/or animals involved in activities supported by the ICRF as well as consideration of potential biohazards is the responsibility of the institution that received the award. 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.
