Why we award grants
We aim to attract the best and the brightest to the field of lung cancer research. An LCFA grant award is typically $200,000 awarded to a young investigator for work over 2 years. These significant awards allow researchers to set up and staff a lab and begin to amass the crucial data needed to attract add-on funding for the project from major funding sources, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
LCFA’s grant criteria is laser-pointed at research projects focused on improving the care and treatment of individuals with lung cancer. By funding their early research years, LCFA provides them the opportunity to stay focused on lung cancer throughout their careers.
