SARC is pleased to announce our 2022 Career Development Award (CDA) funding opportunity. Past graduates (link here) of the SARC CDA program are pursuing productive independent careers at leading institutions across the United States and around the world, and many have already developed into leaders in the field of sarcoma.

SARC is seeking CDA applications from early-stage physicians or scientists conducting sarcoma research in the United States or Canada; qualified candidates will be within five years of their first faculty appointment with a rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor or in the final year of clinical fellowship or postdoctoral fellowship.  SARC Career Development Awards are awarded in the amount of $100,000, with a second year of funding contingent on satisfactory progress and availability of funds.  

For additional parameters and requirements, please review funding opportunities. You are encouraged to please share this information with any individuals or groups that may be interested in this opportunity.
