Grants providing a stipend of $50,000 per year to Israel research institutions on behalf of established investigators to carry out cancer research. Funds are available for basic or clinical research or training. All projects must relate to cancer and be implemented in Israel.
Each application is reviewed by a Scientific Review Panel of the Israel Cancer Research Fund (the Fund) and evaluated for its (1) scientific content and rationale; (2) qualifications, experience and productivity of the candidate; (3) facilities and scientific environment available to the candidate. The relationship of the research to cancer must be defined in the application.
The funds are to be used for actual direct expenses (salary, supplies, etc.) connected with the project.
GrantWatch ID#: 176651
Project Grants provide a stipend of $50,000 per year.
Project Grants are awarded for from one (1) to two (2) years.
The ICRF permits and encourages current Project Grant recipients to reapply for continued funding for the same project. Ideally, this should be done during the second year of the award so that, if selected, the new grant will begin upon completion of the old.
Awards will be activated September 1, 2018.
Project Grants are intended to support the research of established investigators. The grant is made to an institution with the understanding that it will support a specific project under the direction of a designated principal investigator. Project Grant support is given only to Israeli institutions for work in Israel.
Project Grants are given preferentially to those persons who have more than three years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience prior to the date on which the ICRF award is to begin.
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.)
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. However, travel expenses of up to a maximum of $1,000 may be budgeted for RCDAs, CRCDAs, and Postdoctoral Fellowships only.
The application deadline is January 17, 2018, at 11:59 PM ET.
