American Cancer Society (ACS) Institutional Research Grants
Funds for seed money grants are available from our ACS Institutional Research Grant. Applications are reviewed for funding priority by the local ACS/IRG Review Committee at Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The principal purpose of these grants is to support studies undertaken by investigators who are early in their careers and need pilot data before submitting individual research grant applications. More information, past awards, and application.

The Hitchcock Foundation offers career development and clinical research fellowships, a student research award, research grants of up to $30,000, a special projects fund, and a loan fund. Applications can be downloaded from The Hitchcock Foundation website. For more information, call (603) 653-1231.
The Prouty Pilot Project mechanism is designed to advance meritorious cancer research and collaborative interactions.
