The Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Award consists of $1,800 in financial support to offset the costs of registration, travel, and subsistence for participation in American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meetings and Special Conferences. These awards are intended to enhance the education and training of minority researchers and increase the visibility and recognition of minorities involved in cancer research.
Candidates must be:
Complimentary Annual Meeting registration or registration refunds will be processed by the AACR staff for all awardees. Award funds will be distributed to awardees to offset other expenses incurred in conjunction with attendance at the meeting, i.e. travel, hotel, meals, taxis, etc. According to IRS regulations, this award is subject to federal income tax. Thus, all awardees will be issued a 1099 misc tax form at year-end for the amount of the award.

The National Science Foundation aims to ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in the United States and to reinforce its diversity by offering approximately 1,000 graduate fellowships in this competition. The Graduate Research Fellowship provides three years of support for graduate study leading to research-based master's or doctoral degrees and is intended for students who are at the early stages of their graduate study. The Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) invests in graduate education for a cadre of diverse individuals who demonstrate their potential to successfully complete graduate degree programs in disciplines relevant to the mission of the National Science Foundation.
Earliest deadlines are in mid-November and vary with discipline.
Graduate fellowships may be awarded only to citizens or nationals of the US or permanent resident aliens of the United States at the time of application.
Each year the Fellow receives a maintenance grant of $20,000 (paid in two installments) and a tuition grant of one-half the tuition cost of the U.S. graduate program attended by the Fellow (up to a maximum of $16,000 per academic year).
The purpose of The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is to provide opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The Program is established in recognition of the contributions New Americans have made to American life and in gratitude for the opportunities the United States has afforded the donors and their family.
A New American is an individual who (1) is a resident alien; i.e., holds a Green Card, or, (2) has been naturalized as a U.S. citizen, or (3) is the child of two parents who are both naturalized citizens.
The applicant must either have a bachelor's degree or be in her/his final year of undergraduate study. Those who have a bachelor's degree may already be pursuing graduate study and may receive Fellowship support to continue that study. Individuals who are in the third, or subsequent, year of study in the same graduate program are not, however, eligible for this competition. Students who have received a master's degree in a program and are continuing for a doctoral degree in the same program are considered to have been in the same program from the time they began their work on their master's degree.
A Fellow may pursue a graduate degree in any professional field (e.g., engineering, medicine, law, social work, etc.) or scholarly discipline in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The Fine and Performing Arts are included. The Trustees strongly encourage applications from candidates who have not yet begun their graduate studies, but full consideration will be given to candidates in the first or second years of graduate studies in their current program
In November 1988, Public Law (P.L.) 100-607 introduced Section 487A of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 USC 288-1), authorizing the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to establish a program of educational loan repayment to attract additional health professionals into Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) research. The mission of the NIH AIDS Research Loan Repayment Program (AIDS-LRP) is to attract highly qualified physicians, nurses, and scientists to HIV/AIDS research by countering the growing economic disincentives to embark on biomedical research careers, using loan repayment as an incentive. .

The Clinical Research LRP is a vital component of our nation’s efforts to attract health professionals to careers in clinical research. In exchange for a two-year commitment to your clinical research career, NIH will repay up to $35,000 per year of your qualified educational debt, pay an additional 39% of the repayments to cover your Federal taxes, and may reimburse state taxes that result from these payments.
A pilot initiative of $15,000 per year in loan repayment (plus tax reimbursement) is currently available to fellows offered employment by the NIH in subspecialty and residency training programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The purpose of the Health Disparities Research LRP is to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals to research careers that focus on minority health or other health disparity issues. Funding for this LRP is provided through the NIH's National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), which ensures that at least 50 percent of the awards are made to health professionals who are members of identified health disparity populations.
