Fellowship Opportunity – F99-K00 Pre-Doc and Post-Doc Fellowship, NCI – Due: Feb 17, 2017


The National Cancer Institute is looking to fund grad students in their third or fourth year who are interested in pursuing cancer-related research. The opportunity offers up to six years of funding and helps the student transition from pre-doc to post-doc. Applicants will need to plan dissertation research for next 1-2 years and training plan for 3-4 years in post-doc as preparation for independent cancer-focused research. Each institution can nominate only one student to apply for the award. The deadline for the nominee to submit their application is February 17, 2017 5:00 p.m. PST. This is the second year that NCI is offering this fellowship, so the fellowship is new to most. For more details on how to apply and the campus-wide selection of the institutional nominee, please refer to the attached document. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me (contact information below). Thank you for your time.
