Ms. Seunga Yu
Grants will only be awarded to independent investigators who are at the start of their career (i.e., junior faculty) and are at the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent with explanation). Concern will require a letter from the applicant's Department Chair attesting to the applicant's faculty status and to the applicant's status as an independent investigator with independent laboratory space. This letter needs to accompany the initial Letter of Intent from prospective applicants and (if selected) also uploaded with the full proposal.
Priority will be given to proposals from independent investigators who have yet to obtain significant funding for their work.
Applicants must detail all current and pending support from other funding sources, noting any budgetary or scientific overlap. This includes funding from all years of multi-year grants. This information will be requested with the initial LOI and will need to be updated with the full grant application.
Concern Foundation accepts grant applications from institutions in the United States and abroad. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement.
Applicants at governmental agencies are not eligible.
Concern will not fund clinical trials, cancer epidemiology, or behavioral studies.
