American Brain Tumor Association Basic Research Fellowships are $100,000 awards payable over a two-year period. The fellowship provides $45,000 in salary support and $5000 in researcher discretionary funds per annum. The discretionary funds are intended for research equipment, supplies, or travel to appropriate scientific meetings but must include a trip at the end of the award period to present research results. The fellowship award may be used only for salary support and researcher discretionary funds; indirect expenses cannot be allocated from the award. Studies are to be conducted at laboratories in the United States or Canada. Applicants should be on-track to pursue a career in brain tumor research with a sponsor who has a demonstrated history of brain tumor research and mentorship.
