Research Scholar Award in Pancreatic Cancer

The American Gastroenterological Association-Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation Research Scholar Award in Pancreatic Cancer provides $90,000 per year for three years (total $270,000) to young investigators working toward independent careers in pancreatic cancer research. The goal of the award is to enable young investigators to develop independent and productive research careers in digestive diseases by ensuring that a major proportion of their time is protected for research in pancreatic cancer.

Eligibility:

  • Candidates for this award must hold an MD, PhD or equivalent degree (e.g. MB, ChB, MBBS, DO) and a full-time faculty position at a North American institution by July 1, 2017.
