Applicants and institutions must agree to adhere to the ABTA Policies and Procedures for Research Grants and Fellowships. Download the budget detail template and budget justification template required to submit an ABTA research grant.

Please click the ABTA Grant Application Portal button to apply for any of the ABTA RFA-driven grant mechanisms described below.

 

ABTA Research Collaboration (ARC) Grant Program (NEW!)

The ABTA Research Collaboration (ARC) Grants are two-year, $200,000 grants intended to promote team science in a way that will streamline and accelerate progress and effect the desired change in clinical outcome for brain tumors. The research projects supported under this mechanism must be conducted by a team of at least two co-principal investigators (Co-PI's) from distinct institutions.  The research project should be multi-disciplinary in that it incorporates multiple components such as basic, translational, clinical and epidemiological research.  


The ARC Grant Program requires a Letter of Intent (LOI).  The ABTA grant application portal opens in late August or early September for the ARC Grant LOI, and LOI's are accepted through the middle of October.  

ARC research projects are pre-screened using the LOI mechanism.  Invitations and instructions to submit a completed proposal will be extended by email in early December, with an application due date of mid- to late January.
