Grants of up to $60,000 per year to USA, Canada, and International emerging laboratory and clinical scientists to develop the skills and experience for careers in cancer research. Funding is intended to attract junior investigators working under established scientists for mentorship in ovarian cancer research and to develop their potential as research leaders.

Under the guidance of a mentor(s), the Scholar will explore diverse scientific approaches to specific research objectives and develop the skills required of an independent investigator. A successful candidate will provide a convincing argument for why the award will substantially enhance his/her career and development and how the mentor(s) will contribute toward the Scholar’s development as an independent researcher in ovarian cancer. The timeline given in the proposed research plan must be sufficient to support completion of a novel or promising study with proven research objectives.

The Scientific Scholar Award program will support opportunities for junior investigators to interact with senior scientists both locally and nationally. Ultimately, awardees are expected to complete the proposed research plan by the end of the award period and to submit an RO1-type grant that builds on the findings of the supported research.

Applicants must budget at least half of each year’s award for salary support including fringe benefits. Applicants may budget remaining funds for materials, supplies, consumables, travel costs for scientific meetings, and other expenses as justified.

Number of Grants:

The Foundation expects to fund multiple projects each year contingent upon funding availability.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The maximum budget for each project is $120,000 over two years ($60,000 per year).

Term of Contract:

- Scientific Scholar Awards will have a duration of 2 calendar year (24 months) unless otherwise negotiated with and agreed to by the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer.
- The annual start date will be April 1 unless otherwise specified by the Rivkin Center.
- If unexpended funds remain in the budget at the end of the Year 2 funding period, a request for a No-Cost Extension period may be sent via proposalCENTRAL to the Rivkin Center 30 days prior to the completion of the funding period. Otherwise, all unexpended funds must be returned to the Rivkin Center within 90 days of the close of the funding period.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Potential candidates will have an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree with career goals focused on ovarian cancer. Clinicians will have completed their residency. Candidates should be at the post-doc/fellow, instructor, research assistant, or assistant professor level with no more than 3-4 years in any of these positions. Established, outstanding scientists without prior focus in ovarian cancer but looking to focus in this disease area are also encouraged to apply.

Potential candidates can NOT already have an NIH K award or a career development grant from the DoD or elsewhere.

Foreign and non-resident post-docs are not excluded from applying for the Scientific Scholar Award. However, commitment from a mentor for the duration of the project is required to accompany the letter of intent.

Successful candidates will need to identify 1-2 research mentors who are willing to dedicate resources to support a proposed research plan and laboratory/office space that fits his/her short- and long-term goals.

Institutional overhead and indirect costs will not be included in the award.

Pre-Application Information:

All application materials should be submitted through proposalCENTRAL by December 1, 2021, 5 PM Eastern Time. Applicants who do not already have an account in proposalCENTRAL must register for an account prior to beginning application.

Each individual may only submit one Pilot Study or Scientific Scholar Award application to the Rivkin Center per year, not one of each type.
