Request for Scientific Grant Applications
Proposals Now Being Accepted
Thanks to all the continuing support of Floridians in purchasing the end breast cancer specialty plate as well as in the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation’s network of breast cancer supporters, survivors and activists fighting to end breast cancer, we have invested over $2.7M to fulfill our goal of dedicated funding for education and research programs in the state of Florida.
The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation (FBCF), along with those who generously support us with their talent, time and resources, is working to better the lives of those facing Breast Cancer in the Florida community. Grants are awarded in support of innovative education and research programs throughout Florida.
The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation challenges the scientific community to design innovative research that will foster new directions for, address neglected issues in, and bring new investigators to the field of breast cancer research. FBCF focuses its funding on innovative projects that have the potential to make a significant impact on breast cancer, particularly those involving multidisciplinary and/or multi-institutional collaborations.
The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation is currently offering scientific grants of up to $200,000, for up to a maximum of 2 years, for innovative projects in the areas of: epidemiological studies of breast cancer, possible links between breast cancer and the environment, and psycho-immunological research.
All requests for scientific research funding should be directed to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation Scientific Committee. More information on funding opportunities is available at www.FloridaBreastCancer.org.
Only through research and education will breast cancer be defeated. FBCF raises funds to support research within the State of Florida by holding fundraisers, and by promoting the sale and use of the “End Breast Cancer” license plate. We offer scientific research grants to Florida institutions. We serve on cancer boards within the State and on peer review groups nationally.
You, too, can aid breast cancer research.
