CRDF Global is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) from institutions/organizations for the Cancer Research Training Travel Awards for Low- and middle-income Country (LMIC), to facilitate and increase LMIC investigator participation in research training opportunities. Funding for this initiative is provided by CRDF Global, utilizing funds provided by NCI’s Center for Global Health.
The Cancer Research Training Travel Awards will be granted to institutions/organizations to facilitate and increase LMIC investigator participation in research training opportunities. Organizers of scientific meetings (conferences, workshops and/or courses) that offer research skill-development opportunities with a high potential to improve biomedical, behavioral or clinical cancer research are encouraged to apply.
Awards will be made to institutes/organizations willing and able to solicit, select and facilitate the travel of investigators from LMICs to participate in a proposed training opportunity. Funding is intended for travel awardees and should be applied toward costs related to travel, accommodation, per diem allowance, and registration fees associated with the training opportunity. The award is not intended to provide funding support towards the actual training opportunity directly.
