The Sontag Foundation Distinguished Scientist Award

Inspire us. We're looking for early career scientists with the potential to create new waves across the brain cancer field. We're looking for increased survival rates and improved recovery for patients. We're looking for a cure or at the very least, treatments to make brain cancer a manageable chronic disease.

In October 2008, The Sontag Foundation will present up to three Distinguished Scientist Awards to the most outstanding early career scientists with inspiring, potential-laden brain cancer research proposals. Each Award consists of a four-year funding component totaling a maximum of $600,000.

The application deadline for 2008 is Noon March 18, 2008.

Eligibility Requirements


Up to $150,000 each of four years–as supported by budget request.

Budgets must be approved in advance; funds will be disbursed to the institution in quarterly payments for up to four years, depending upon evidence of satisfactory progress. Progress reports must be received and approved prior to second, third and fourth year of funding. The Sontag Foundation will allow up to 15% of the award to support institutional overhead. Funding period will begin on or about October 1, 2008, and end on September 30, 2012.
