International Sarcoma Career Development Award: Review Process
There will be a two-stage review process.
SARC Career Development Award Review Committee is a group composed of respected sarcoma clinician-scientists. They will first review the two page letter outlining the research proposals based on the criteria listed below. If accepted, the candidate will be asked to submit a full grant proposal including a detailed budget, letter of institutional commitment, and letter of support from mentor. The full grant proposals will be reviewed by the Committee and notification of awards will be made by June 1, 2013.

- Evidence of the candidate’s commitment to a clinical research career in sarcoma.
- Candidate’s formal research training, laboratory experience, and productivity.
- Evidence of the candidate’s original research in the relevant area.
- Importance of the research to the field.

- Appropriateness of the methodology and scope of the project.
- Commitment of the candidate’s department and institution to the area of research and to the candidate.
