April 6, 2017

Today’s the day! (Drumroll please!) It’s time to announce some exciting news — St. Baldrick’s very first grants of the year are here, with more to come. Read on to learn about our 2017 Summer Fellow grants, how these grants build a brighter future for children’s cancer research and how YOU made this support possible.

Summer Fellows 2017

Our 2017 Summer Fellow grants are here!

This year, 21 institutions will receive $5,000, which will support medical school or college students working on a childhood cancer research project.

These students will get the chance to spend their summer working in the pediatric cancer field under the mentorship of a childhood cancer expert.

In a time when students might be deterred from pursuing pediatric oncology because funding is so scarce, these $5,000 grants are crucial in helping young investigators get a toehold in the field while ensuring a vibrant future for childhood cancer research.

We hope these summer fellowships spark a passion that turns these bright young minds into our next childhood cancer research trailblazers — and it’s all thanks to you.
