The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Global Cancer Disparities Pilot Grant will provide funding to a physician from an African country to support global research in cancer management.
Applicants must develop a one-year pilot study in the area of cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, or outcomes. This project must be carried out in the applicant’s home country. The aim of the project should be to develop data to aid in applying for additional larger grants in the future. An award of $10,000 will be paid directly to the individual and must be used only for pre-approved, budgeted costs.
To qualify, applicants must be African citizens, currently reside in an African country, hold a faculty position at their institution, and demonstrate an interest in improving cancer management in their home country.
