Since 2003, Uniting Against Lung Cancer has awarded over $11.5 million supporting research aimed at improved treatment and a cure for lung cancers, including non-small cell and small cell lung cancers. The Foundation prioritizes novel ideas with potential to make a significant impact on current treatment of lung cancer and patient survival, adding years rather than months. 

Last year, we awarded over $1.5 million in research grants and look forward to increasing our support this year. View our portfolio of funded projects here.

This program offers $100,000 awards at $50,000 per year. *Note: The budget template can be accessed within the online application.

*Eligibility: Principal Investigators (PIs) should hold a faculty appointment or be mentored by a faculty member in good standing at a not-for-profit academic, medical or research institution, within the United States or Canada. Applicants are not required to be U.S. citizens in order to apply or receive a Uniting Against Lung Cancer grant, but must have a valid visa for the length of the grant. Collaborations with industry partners are also strongly encouraged; however the Principal Investigator is required to be an academic researcher. Applicants should apply from the sponsoring institution of employment during the grant term. If you will be moving to a new institution before the start of the grant term, please apply from the new institution, including all supporting documents. 

** Young Investigators are required to submit a Statement of Professional Goals (500 word max).
