Prevent Cancer Foundation

For almost 30 years, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has been funding grants and fellowships. The goal of the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s Research Program is to provide funding for innovative projects expected to lead to future funding from other peer-reviewed sources.

Prevent Cancer Fellowships

The Prevent Cancer Foundation is the only U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit organization solely devoted to cancer prevention and early detection. Prevent Cancer focuses its resources on cancers that can be prevented through lifestyle changes or early detection, when treatment is more likely to be successful. We are devoted to saving lives through cancer prevention and early detection across all populations. Since its founding in 1985, Prevent Cancer has invested more than $138 million in research, education, advocacy and community outreach programs across the nation in support of our mission.

Fellowships will be awarded for two years at $40,000 per year, for a total of $80,000.  The goal of the Foundation’s research program is to provide funding for innovative projects expected to lead to future funding from other peer-reviewed sources. Therefore, Fellowships are non-renewable.
