Fellowships from NCC are established at $50,000 for the first year and $52,000 in the second year for post-doctoral awards, and are awarded annually. Fellowships are intended for applicants under age 35 with less than two years of post- doctoral laboratory experience, except in extenuating circumstances. Fellowships are also limited to applicants having received no more than one prior fellowship or one career development award. Individuals receiving concurrent support from another organization are not eligible to apply.
Preference will be given to studies that have direct relevance to the diagnosis and treatment of human cancer.
Fellowship awards are not necessarily restricted to salary. Depending on the circumstances, part of the funds may be used for supplies or other valid expenses, which should be listed in the proposed budget. NCC reserves the right to delete any item it deems inappropriate.
The fellowship may be transferable upon application and review, in the event that the fellow leaves the sponsoring organization.
Fellowships generally are extended for a second year. However, adequate progress must have been demonstrated during the first year as evidenced through a progress report submitted with renewal application. Awards are limited to one per laboratory. There can be several different applications if they are on different topics. However, only one award could be made per lab in any round of applications.
NCC fellowship grants do not include funds for institutional overhead and a statement by the institution accepting this condition is required.
