Fellowship Program

Brain Tumour Research Fellows

Important research fellowships are made possible from the generous support of donors. Fellowships provide funding for two years ($100,000 over two years) to young researchers, helping them to start their careers in the important field of brain tumour research. Thank you.

About the Fellowships

Fellowships are awarded on a bi-annual basis and offer funds to cover salary and lab expenses for two years ($50,000 each year). Fellowships accelerate movement towards our vision to find the cause of and cure for brain tumours while improving the quality of life for those affected - and in recognition of the critical need for increased focus on brain tumour research.

A Brain Tumour Research Fellowship encourages and enables young clinicians and scientists to enter the field of brain tumour research and will accelerate studies leading to a cure for brain tumours.  Research projects considered for support include Basic, Clinical or Translational Research and all research focuses will be given serious consideration, including pediatric brain tumours.
