Grant Description
Grants of up to $50,000 to researchers affiliated with qualified USA institutions to advance research in the field of pediatric oncology. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to increase the institution's capacity to conduct childhood cancer clinical trials by acquiring the personnel and resources needed.

These grants are not for a specific research project, but rather for resources to allow more research to be done. They support institutions with the potential for more participation in childhood cancer clinical trials but which currently lack the necessary resources. Applications to support Clinical Research Associate (CRA) type positions are preferred. Preference is given to institutions with high needs and low philanthropic support in geographical areas where St. Baldrick’s funds are raised. Institutions that do not currently receive other St. Baldrick’s grants are also given preference. 

Resource sharing is an expected outcome of all St. Baldrick's Foundation (SBF) supported grants. Grantees are expected to encourage and facilitate resource sharing. Sharing research outputs increases access to scientific information, promotes collaboration, accelerates discovery, and improves the reproducibility of research.
