The Hollings Cancer Center Fellowship program is an exciting research program designed to train the next generation of exceptional cancer scientists at the Medical University of South Carolina. This prestigious program will initially fund up to 5 two-year postdoctoral fellowships (Ph.D. or M.D.) and up to 5 two-year graduate student fellowships.

To reach the goal of living in a cancer-free world, a multidisciplinary approach must be taken to find cures for this complex, insidious disease. Hollings Cancer Center encourages applicants from diverse fields of study in either the basic, translational, population or clinical sciences to apply. Fellowships will be awarded to those with the greatest potential to become independent cancer researchers and compete for extramural grants. Hollings Cancer Center anticipates adding undergraduate, medical student, and international fellowships in the near future.

Initiated in 2018, the Hollings Cancer Center Fellowship program is the newest in a lineup of cancer research endeavors sponsored by the Abney Foundation Scholarship, which was established in 1996 to support graduate and postdoctoral students to pursue careers in cancer research. In the ensuing years, the Abney Foundation Scholarship program has produced an extensive network of 144 researchers, clinicians and educators who now serve throughout South Carolina, across America, and around the world.
