The UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has several intramural funding mechanisms, including our Fellowship Program that accepts applications annually for cancer-focused research projects from post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and residents. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to provide research funding to pursue research projects and develop preliminary data needed to competitively apply for NIH F-type grants. The Cancer Center additionally maintains a webpage highlighting extramural cancer-focused funding opportunities.
