Scholar Award Nominations


The Foundation is looking for outstanding junior clinical or post-doctoral fellows to attend the annual Foundation Forum in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. During the meeting recipients of the award have an unrivaled opportunity to interact with international experts in a particular field of cancer research.

In addition, award recipients will be invited to participate in the Foundation’s Scholar Retreats for the subsequent four years. This gives then further opportunities to interact with their peers and meet with different groups of international cancer experts. Existing awardees have found these interactions invaluable in developing collaborations as well as opening up a variety of career opportunities. Joining this group also offers awardees the opportunity of being able to apply for other programs sponsored by the Foundation that are only open to Forbeck Scholars. During this four year period the Foundation will pay all of your expenses to attend the meetings and offer a stipend to individuals at the end of their tenure period.
