Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer, Inc. Research Grant Program
Application deadline: August 30, 2013
Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer, Inc. (WOKC) is a Dallas-based nonprofit organization founded in 1980 dedicated to raising awareness and funding pediatric cancer research on a national basis. WOKC’s mission is to work relentlessly for the day when all children are living cancer free.
One of the main goals of WOKC is to find cures through research. To meet this goal, WOKC provides grants to support meritorious research ranging from basic laboratory investigation to clinical management of pediatric cancers. For all awarded grants, collaboration with a pediatric cancer treatment center and an institution with basic and/or clinical research programs are encouraged.
Policies and Guidelines
Research Grants are offered to encourage the development of new information that contributes to the understanding, treatment, and cure of pediatric cancers. In addition, consideration will be given to those projects that provide insight into information that may contribute to the development of new therapies for pediatric cancers. All proposals must be hypothesis driven, and sufficient preliminary data must be provided to justify the WOKC support. Information derived from these studies should have high potential for sustainable future support from other funding agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Research Grant applications should focus on basic science research or clinical research. Those proposals that include methodologies requiring sampling of materials from human subjects will be considered under this mechanism only if the sampling method constitutes minimal patient risk and are approved by the clinical/research institutions internal review board. All other projects utilizing human subjects must submit a Clinical Research Letter of Intent.
Applications for Research Grants are being accepted with the following stipulations:
Funding amount from $50,000 up to $150,000, including no more than 8% indirect costs, may be requested.
Grants may be approved for up to a 1 year period of funding.
Because grants cover only one year of research, likelihood of future funding from other sources will be considered and should be explained by the applicant.
Applicants must be independent investigators, or clinical or research receiving direct oversight/mentorship by an independent investigator.
Applicants need not be U.S. Citizens or hold a U.S. permanent visa to apply for this award.
International applicants and institutions are required to submit additional information in accordance with U.S. anti-terror restrictions.
Application Deadline: August 30, 2013 at 5:00pm (Eastern Time)
Applications must be sent electronically with any signatures scanned to Evelyn Costolo at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copies will not be accepted.
Do not submit an incomplete application. An application will be considered incomplete if it fails to comply with instructions or if the material is insufficient to permit adequate review.
Revisions, insertions or appendices to applications will not be accepted after the receipt date unless agreed to by WOKC’s Grants Committee. Even if a part of an application is approved for late submission, there is no guarantee that the application will be reviewed. Only Human Subjects Certification, Use of Animals Certification, and Recombinant DNA Approval will be accepted apart from the body of the grant application if they are not available at time of submission.
Requests to submit supplemental data must be received before November 1st.
