Grants of up to $75,000 to USA, Canada, and International individual investigators for projects in any area related to Ovarian Cancer Research. Priority is given to proposals that are multidisciplinary, innovative, show potential for translational research, and those that may lead to independently funded investigations.


Funding for innovative approaches to scientific questions can be difficult to find as these new ideas may not yet be mainstream in the scientific community. In order to foster these novel ideas, the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer funds promising pilot studies in ovarian cancer each year. The discoveries from these studies lay the groundwork for major research initiatives and allow scientists to further pursue research ideas through highly competitive national government grants necessary to complete these projects. Funding is open to investigator-initiated projects in all areas of ovarian cancer research. In addition, projects designed to analyze data from already funded clinical trials will be considered.

Applicants may budget for salary support, materials, supplies, consumables, travel costs for scientific meetings, and other expenses as justified.

Award recipients are encouraged to use results to publish findings and develop full-scale funding applications to national agencies.
