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.

Request for Proposals: Hematology Oncology Pharmacy Association 2013 Research Award
The HOPA Foundation Board announces the opening of a call for proposals for the 2013 HOPA Foundation Research Award. The HOPA Foundation will fund up to 3 grants based on the stated scope of work. A total of $50,000 in funding is available to be awarded in 2013 through a competitive peer-review process described below.
The individual award is intended to support a hematology/oncology pharmacy practice research project with subsequent publication that aligns with the strategic plan of the HOPA Foundation. Pharmacy practice is broadly defined including areas such as outcomes, surveys, patient safety, standards validation, and translational science applications. Multiple institutions may be involved in the project, and co-PI projects are allowed. The grant is open to all members of HOPA except standing members of the HOPA Foundation and HOPA Board Members.
The HOPA research grants are intended to provide support for projects that are likely to result in facilitating the efforts of hematology/oncology pharmacists to optimize the care of individuals affected by cancer.
The HOPA Foundation Research Grant Review Panel will be chaired by a Foundation Board member; however its composition may vary based on the nature of the proposals received. Members will be comprised of individuals with expertise and familiarity in practice and research.
1. A Letter of Intent (LOI) must be submitted electronically by June 14, 2013 to the attention of Susan Floutsakos at (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will act as the Grant Administrator.
2. The LOIs will be reviewed by members of the HOPA Foundation Research Grant Panel and a decision regarding acceptance for development into a full grant proposal in July 2013. Concepts presented in the LOI that do not address stated objectives and/or criteria of the RFP will be returned and not considered further with a letter of explanation.
3. Submitters of LOIs that are approved for development will be invited to prepare a full grant proposal using the current NIH format. Refer to http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html for format. The grant proposals will be due by September 16, 2013. Grant applications must be submitted electronically as a single pdf file to Susan Floutsakos, (email@example.com) the Grant Administrator.
4. The public announcement of the awards will occur in late November 2013. All applicants will receive written feedback regarding review of their application.

2. The awardee is required to submit a report of progress every six months to the HOPA Foundation Board Chair.
3. The awardee is expected to present the results of their research at the HOPA annual meeting. This presentation is expected to occur no later than two years after the release of the research funds. The results of the study are expected to be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed biomedical print or online journal. The HOPA Foundation is to be acknowledged in any presentation or publication for its support of the research.
4. There is no provision for indirect costs in this research grant. A travel budget is expected to be included in the proposal to allow the presentation of the results at the HOPA annual meeting.

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
