Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International individuals for medical research projects related to pediatric cancer. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support scientists, researchers, professors, and doctors conducting research projects on pediatric, adolescent, or young adult rhabdomyosarcoma.
Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research and Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer invite applications for innovative research strategies that directly address pediatric, adolescent or young adult rhabdomyosarcoma through a novel idea. These grants are designed to provide seed funding for a new idea that may not have preliminary data but for which a strong case can be made for the potential impact for children battling rhabdomyosarcoma.
Rally funds pediatric cancer research in the following areas:
  • Innovative approaches to research which could lead to advanced studies or clinical trials.
  • Basic science studies that are likely to lead to a new discovery.
  • Personalized, targeted, alternative or integrative research proposals.
  • Under-studied cancer types.
  • Quality of life, survivorship and palliative care studies.
  • Data utilization through data standardization, collection, storage, analysis and sharing.

The application must address the following priority areas related to rhabdomyosarcoma in children (0-14), adolescents (15-19) and/or young adults (20-24):

  • A novel idea for innovative research that could lead to advanced studies or clinical trials.
  • Treatment approaches that aim to limit the long-term side effects.
