The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CCF) is pleased to announce that its 2024 Call for Proposals is open.

Yiouli Ktena, M.D. of Johns Hopkins is awarded the CCF Giant Food NextGen award at the 2023 CCF Gala.

Each year, CCF accepts requests for research and program funding from local researchers and programs seeking to advance cures and support for local kids facing cancer. Research awards are typically $75,000 for a one-year grant and the CCF Giant Food NextGen Award for a young investigator is $100,000. Exact amounts vary based on funds raised that year.

CCF prioritizes funding local research. The funds invested in research today become tomorrow’s cures. Childhood cancer research receives less than 4% of the annual federal cancer research budget, which means CCF support is vital for ensuring that critical research continues. A CCF research grant can change the outcome of a child facing a diagnosis of cancer. Meet some incredible heroes who are thriving today due to research!

CCF understands the impact funding can make towards better outcomes for a child facing a diagnosis of cancer.  Meet the 2023 Grant Awardees.

Deadline for submission is May 5, 2024 at 11:59 (EST).
