For Researchers

Basic Research Fellowships are two-year, $100,000 mentored grants supporting postdoctoral fellows who are conducting laboratory or field-based research projects that focus on brain tumors.

Fellows must have a lead mentor who currently conducts brain tumor research at the same academic institution. The mentor will help with scientific management and other research guidance to foster the applicant’s career advancement.

Basic Research Fellowship projects are pre-screened using a letter of intent (LOI), typically due in November of every calendar year. Invitations and instructions to submit a complete proposal are extended by email in early February, with an application due date of mid-to-late March.
