NCI/P01 guidelines may be found at .

Applicants may request up to $200,000/year, not to exceed 2 years per award. The total maximum award is $400,000. Applications must be approved by Program Leader(s) on behalf of the team interested in applying.


Only Cancer Center Members may apply. To be eligible for an award, an application must consist of a minimum of three scientifically meritorious projects. Awardees are required to submit a SPORE or P01 at the end of the project. Award recipients will be expected to present progress to the Scientific Steering Committee every six months.
