Request for Proposals: International Innovation Grant
The International Innovation Grant provides research funding in support of novel and innovative projects that can have a significant impact on cancer control in low- and middle-income countries.
The International Innovation Grant is a one-year research grant of up to $20,000 that is awarded and paid directly to a nonprofit organization or governmental agency in a low-income or middle-income country. The grant may be used by the organization only for the approved, budgeted costs of the research project. Each grant will have a Principal Investigator who is an ASCO member, is affiliated with the Grantee Organization, and is a resident of the low-income or middle-income country.
International Innovation Grants are hypothesis-driven research grants that fund a specific research project that may result in the discovery of new knowledge about how to advance cancer control in a low- or middle-income setting. It is anticipated that novel approaches and clinical designs proposed for this grant may differ from what would be considered standard practice within high-income settings. Grantee Organizations and Principal Investigators will be expected to share and disseminate the knowledge gained during their research project.
The online system will open for Letter of Intent submission on July 1, 2013. All Letters of Intent must be submitted by August 1, 2013.

American Cancer Society International Fellowships for Beginning Investigators
The objectives of this 12 month ACSBI fellowship, of a value of USD 50,000, are to foster a bi-directional flow of research knowledge, experience, expertise and innovation between countries and to advance the academic career development of beginning cancer investigators through clinical, behavioural and basic research projects.
Closing date: 1 November
The ACSBI fellowship emphasizes the transfer of knowledge from the host institute to others at the home institute. It offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by experts in the chosen field, receive hands on experience in clinical, behavioural or basic research, intellectual stimulation, research guidance, narrative transfer and many other opportunities to evolve scientifically and academically.
The goals include not only developing future leaders in cancer research in low/middle income countries, but also facilitating a global effort in cancer prevention and control. This will be done by developing the necessary intellectual infrastructure in home countries (since ACSBI fellows must return to their home institute), encouraging collaborative interactions to facilitate interdisciplinary basic and applied cancer research, and establishing a network of researchers and translational scientists for rapid dissemination of new knowledge and technology in developing and sharing of best practices.
• Be a beginning investigator or clinician in the early stages of their independent investigator career and must possess a terminal, advanced degree with a desire to become an independent investigator
• Applicants are to be in the early phases of their career and no longer under research mentoring.
• Hold an academic university or hospital position with an explicit commitment to return to the home institute
• Conduct the research at not-for-profit institutions. Please note that this is not a first post doctoral fellowship
•Fellowships cannot be granted to candidates who are already physically present at the proposed host institute whilst their applications are under consideration.
Note: This is not a clinical training fellowship

Incorporated in 1985, the Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to promote the conservation of natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and improve health in the developing world. The foundation helps build capacity within developing countries in its three areas of interest with grants that support research or projects that solve specific problems.
The foundation supports projects that demonstrate strong local leadership, promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem in the field. It prefers to support projects addressing under-funded issues and geographic areas.
The foundation’s geographic focus is the developing world. It prefers to support organizations located in developing countries or to developed country organizations whose activities are of direct and immediate benefit to developing countries. The foundation does not consider the states of the former Soviet Union or former Eastern Bloc countries as within its geographic focus.
Fields of Interest
The Conservation, Food & Health Foundation supports special projects and programs of non governmental organizations in three primary fields of interest: conservation, food, and health. Examples of areas of interest within these fields follow, but are not meant to be exclusive.
Conservation grants help improve ecological and environmental conditions in the developing world. The foundation supports field research and related research activities, training, and technical assistance efforts that:
help conserve viable ecosystems and protect biological diversity in developing countries
train local leaders in conservation and protection of resources, with an emphasis on technical and scientific training
Food grants support focused efforts to improve access to food for consumption in developing countries. Areas of interest include projects that:
promote or develop specific sustainable agriculture practices with potential to advance science and practice in other countries;
develop new approaches that address fuel and resource problems related to food production and preparation in developing countries;
explore and refine innovative education and training interventions for small scale food producers and farmers; and
advance new approaches to control pests and diseases affecting important food crops of developing countries
The foundation supports public health programs that are preventive rather than curative in nature. It supports research, technical assistance, and training projects that:
improve public health through community-based efforts that address health promotion, disease prevention, family planning, and reproductive health; and
increase the understanding and treatment of tropical diseases
