Funding Amount:

Unspecified, though categorical limits apply. For the F99 phase, award budgets are composed of stipends, tuition and fees, and institutional allowance. For the K00 phase, award budgets are composed of salaries and fringe benefits, tuition and fees, research and career development support, and indirect costs.


One application per institution per due date is allowed.

The purpose of the F99/K00 award is to encourage and retain outstanding graduate students who have demonstrated potential and interest in pursuing careers as independent cancer researchers. The award will facilitate the transition of graduate students into cancer research postdoctoral appointments.

The award is intended for individuals who require 1-2 years to complete their Ph.D. dissertation research training (F99 phase) before transitioning to mentored postdoctoral research training (K00 phase). Consequently, applicants are expected to propose an individualized research training plan for the next 1-2 years of dissertation research training and a plan for 3-4 years of mentored postdoctoral research and career development activities that will prepare them for independent cancer-focused research careers.
