Collaborative Research Funding Opportunity


New! 2nd Funding Cycle Added

Applications due June 1st and December 15th

Since the program’s inception in 2008, the NNECOS Research Funding Program has awarded more than$120,000 to worthy projects of value to the Northern New England region.

Call for Proposals

The Northern New England Clinical Oncology Society is seeking research funding proposals for investigative projects of value to the entire Northern New England community of cancer care providers. The society seeks to award one or more research grants to worthy proposals, up to a total of $20,000. Eligible candidates will be a current NNECOS member in good standing. Projects should be in alignment with the society’s mission to assure access to high quality oncology care in our region. Preference will be given to projects promoting collaboration amongst NNECOS institutions (academic and community). Fellows and others are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Please note NNECOS is unable to fund indirect costs or investigator salaries as part of the grant budget. Funds for services of collaborating facility employees required in the operations of a project (i.e. research coordinator, statistician, etc.) will be considered, but should not exceed national averages for their role.

Awardees will be notified on or around June 30, 2017, be required to submit progress reports to NNECOS, and may be asked to present a final report of the research to the NNECOS annual meeting.

! Completed applications must be received through online submission no later than 11:00 pm on June 1, 2017.
