Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International investigators associated with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and public and private institutions to support new and innovative cancer research projects in their early and conceptual stages. A Letter of Intent must be submitted prior to submission of a full application. Eligible studies are those that involve scientific risk but potentially lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on cancer research.

The SWOG/Hope Foundation Impact Award is a funding program that encourages novel and innovative SWOG research.  The work proposed should use resources from completed SWOG trials or be directly translatable to future clinical trials in SWOG and the National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) . 

Projects will be prioritized based on (1) scientific merit; and (2) clinical relevance and potential to integrate with clinical trials. Priority will be given to projects that address issues germane to ongoing or planned SWOG clinical trials, or to projects that show potential for leading to a future clinical trial. 

SWOG’s mission is to improve the practice of cancer medicine in preventing, detecting, and treating cancer, and to enhance the quality of life for cancer survivors, primarily through design and conduct of clinical trials. SWOG is a National Cancer Institute-supported network of more than 4,000 cancer researchers at more than 500 institutions in the U.S., Canada, and beyond. Additional educational and cancer research support is provided by SWOG’s non-profit, philanthropic partner, The Hope Foundation for Cancer Research

Achieving SWOG’s mission of changing the practice of cancer medicine in clinical trials requires innovative ideas, techniques and perspectives. SWOG and The Hope Foundation understand that novel ideas might not align with current thinking or may not yet be supported by substantial preliminary data. The Impact Award Program is intended to foster novel scientific ideas, agents, targets, and technologies that have the potential to substantially advance the practice of clinical cancer research within the Group. 

Funding for smaller feasibility projects that are critical to the conduct of future SWOG trials are also encouraged.
