The HCC Graduate Fellowship will provide two-year research fellowships to support the development of highly promising and accomplished graduates with the potential to become independent cancer research scientists. Due to the complexity of cancer, finding ways to prevent and cure this disease requires a multidisciplinary effort. Therefore, doctoral students in any discipline at MUSC with an interest in cancer research are encouraged to apply. The HCC Graduate Fellowship will provide up to two years of stipend and tuition assistance, providing an opportunity for the most promising students to become more immersed in cancer research.
Applications will be assigned to internal reviewers who have substantial expertise in cancer research and grant review. These reviewers will score applications based on the standard NIH criteria:
Invitations may be issued for select applicants to discuss their research projects in person. These interviews will be used to ascertain that the student developed the application and to assess the student’s independence and communication skills.
