The Children’s Tumor Foundation is pleased to announce that for the 2021 Young Investigator Award (YIA) cycle, postdoctoral recipients will receive salary support for an additional year beyond the original two-year award duration. The third year of funding will be contingent upon satisfactory progress of the first two years as well as a plan for future directions/funding of the work, and career development.

Additionally, the yearly funding for all postdoctoral YIAs awarded in 2021 will be increased from previous years, as outlined below.



The Letter of Intent stage of the YIA program will open on December 7, 2020. Additional details about the program and the application process can be found here, and also by emailing
