Ohio Cancer Research Seed Money Grants

Logo for Ohio Cancer Research

Grants awarded by Ohio Cancer Research (OCR) are made to support research activities broadly related to cancer and leukemia. With the support of people all over Ohio, progressive and innovative ideas are given a chance to help in the fight. OCR's seed money projects often give a researcher the preliminary data needed to secure major funding from other sources.

The organization seeks to fund research that will lead to continued support at the national level. Targeted to junior faculty (full professors are not eligible to apply), applicants must be independent and within six (6) years of their first independent research position.

The number of grants awarded is dependent upon available funds. OCR is offering up to $30,000 per year for two years through this competition. The deadline to apply is March 4, 2019.
