Emerging Scientist Award

Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) is a national nonprofit committed to finding safer, more effective therapies for kids battling cancer. Thanks to donors and partners around the country, we have contributed $200 million to research, education and awareness, and quality-of-life programs for childhood cancer families. We believe kids deserve safer, less toxic treatments, and we’re committed to funding groundbreaking research and services that enhance healing and care.

With the Emerging Scientist Award, our goal is to develop the independent research of highly qualified individuals, still early in their careers, who are focused on cancers impacting children and adolescents.
The Emerging Scientist award supports basic, clinical, translational, or epidemiological research. Projects may include pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; and development of new research technology.
