Ways to Give

Name a research grant in honor or memory of a loved one by funding an ICRF Scientist in Israel.

ICRF welcomes all contributions to support its efforts in funding Israel’s most brilliant cancer research scientists. ICRF–sponsored cancer research grants are selected by ICRF’s Scientific Review Panel (SRP), comprised of leading American and Canadian physicians and scientists working in fields related to cancer research. This prominent international group meets annually to review applications submitted to ICRF. After a lengthy peer-review process, their recommendations are approved by the ICRF Board of Trustees. The review process is modeled after that of the NIH; strict guidelines are followed to ensure fairness and impartiality.

There are eight categories of ICRF cancer research grants:

1.  International Collaboration Grants - $165,000 per year for 3 Years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to the most promising cancer research projects being conducted on a collaborative basis between an American or Canadian research institution and investigators in Israel.

2.  Professorships - $55,000 per year for 7 years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to full-time senior faculty or scientists in equivalent positions who have made outstanding contributions to cancer research.

3.  Clinical Research Career Development Awards - $49,500 per year
for 3 years  
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to promising young medical or pediatric oncologists to afford them the time to conduct clinical research projects and to obtain additional training to become leaders in clinical research programs.

4.  Research Career Development Awards - $38,500 per year for 3 years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to promising researchers in the field of cancer who have advanced beyond the postdoctoral level and are well on their way to becoming outstanding independent investigators.

5.  Acceleration Grants - $55,000 per year for 2 years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Intended to speed up our efforts to fully understand the biology behind cancer, grant applications in this category are required to propose highly-innovative approaches that have the promise of pioneering new ways of thinking about cancer biology and therapeutics.

6.  Project Grants - $55,000 per year for 1-2 years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to support the research of an established investigator working on a specific project under the direction of a designated Principal Investigator.

7.  Postdoctoral Fellowships - $27,500 per year for 2 years
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to new M.D.’s and Ph.D.’s who will apprentice in the laboratories of senior investigators.

8.  Booster Grants - $14,00 per year for 1 year
(includes 10% Indirect Cost Recovery)
Awarded to new M.D.’s and Ph.D.’s who applied for Postdoctoral Fellowships, but just missed out on funding, in order to help them to continue their research work and then reapply in the following year with additional and improved data.
