The Ladies Auxiliary VFW presents an opportunity for researchers to devote two years, full-time to making new discoveries about cancer.
The winner of the fellowship will be notified by June 1, 2014, and upon receipt of written acceptance, $50,000 will be issued. By March 1, 2015, the recipient must send a progress report which will be reviewed to determine if the rest of the fellowship will be disbursed. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of basic and clinical researchers in the oncology field.
The funds are to be used as a salary or stipend, which may cover fringe benefits. If the institution's normal postdoctoral salary is greater than $50,000 per year, it is acceptable for the institution to supplement the salary. If the normal salary is less than $50,000, the excess funds may be used for lab equipment or supplies. During the two-year term of this fellowship, the researcher may not receive other funding towards his or her salary except as just described. Funds must be used prior to July 1, 2016, unless approved by the Ladies Auxiliary VFW. Fellowships are not renewable.
