The hope for better futures for kids with cancer relies on childhood cancer research. And that research relies — not only today but for decades to come — on the training of the next generation of childhood cancer researchers. This new investment of over $1.2 million puts these young researchers on that path to finding new cures.
Read more below about what this new investment is supporting.
The next generation of childhood cancer researchers is rolling up their lab coat sleeves and doubling down on the fight to end childhood cancers.
Thanks to donors like you, these doctors will train with leaders in the field and launch new research projects to answer pressing questions in the quest to conquer childhood cancers.

Enrollment on a clinical trial is often a child’s best hope for a cure. And every child enrolled on a trial is helping kids in the future to have a better outcome.
This new investment of $3.5 million brings the total granted by St. Baldrick’s for research since 2005 to more than $310 million.
The 9 grants include new funding for 3 new St. Baldrick’s Scholars, and 1 new International Scholar from Uganda. Also receiving new funding for projects already underway are 4 team science projects (Consortium grants) and 1 Strategic Initiative: the Pediatric Cancer Data Commons.Honored Kid Augie
The next generation of childhood cancer researchers are hard at work to create better futures for kids with cancer. Thanks to your fundraising and generosity there is hope, and the future is bright!
You – St. Baldrick’s donors and fundraising participants – make this possible. Thank you!
St. Baldrick’s Foundation Fellowship Awards support new pediatric oncology doctors for two to three years to conduct childhood cancer research while receiving advanced training under a mentor.

Enrollment on a clinical trial is often a child’s best hope for a cure.
Clinical trials offer children in treatment hope for a better future with fewer side effects. Clinical trials also help scientists to improve upon the standard treatments of today, making significant strides towards more effective and less toxic cures for children now and in the future.
This is it! You — St. Baldrick’s donors and participants — have poured your passion into funding childhood cancer research, even in difficult times like these. And because of you, today we all celebrate the biggest batch of new grants of the year.
This new investment of $12.9 million brings the total granted by St. Baldrick’s for research since 2005 to more than $300 million.
The 53 grants include new funding for 18 Research Grants, 5 Supportive Care Research Grants, 9 St. Baldrick’s Scholars, and 1 International Scholar from India.
