03.05.2013 | New ASCO/CCF Funding for LMCs
Announced on May 2, 2013

On May 2 ASCO and its philanthropic affiliate, the Conquer Cancer Foundation, posted on their websites information about the Foundation’s new grant supporting research and innovation in low- and middle-income countries.  Information can be found at

The International Innovation Grants are designed to spur innovative, “home-grown” approaches to cancer control in low- and middle-income countries.  Each grant provides up to $20,000 that is awarded to a nonprofit organization or governmental agency in a low-income or middle-income country, and requires that the Principal Investigator is an ASCO member, is affiliated with the Grantee Organization, and is a LMC resident.  Many more details and application instructions are provided in the Request for Proposal (RFP) document posted to the webpage linked above. 

The application will follow a two-stage process, starting with a Letter of Intent that can be submitted between July 1 and August 1.  Potential applicants can get started now by reviewing the RFP and beginning to develop the application components. 

Our hope is that this funding mechanism will help fresh ideas become reality and, through ASCO’s communication and education channels, be disseminated to other LMC environments.
