The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, in partnership with the UAMS Rural Research Network, has created the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Rural Research Award Program. The goal of this program is to support investigators or teams of investigators seeking to collect data for competitive NCI/NIH R01 grant submissions. The program funds projects with a maximum budget of $100,000 each.
Priority will be given to projects that focus on prostate, colon, breast, and/or lung cancer; cancer patient outcomes; cancer screening and prevention; cancer health disparities; and/or projects utilizing the UAMS Rural Research Network.
Priority will also be given to applicants who are a full or associate member of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. To learn more about becoming a Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute member or to apply, visit the Institute’s membership page.
Applicants must be faculty members at UAMS, Arkansas Children’s/ACRI, and/or CAVHS with a rank of Assistant Professor or above.
The Rural Research Award Program RFA cycle begins each spring.
