Who is eligible for an ICI Award?

Applications must be submitted by a team that includes at least one cancer researcher working in partnership with a bioinformatician, computational biologist, or computer scientist either or both of whom should be junior faculty, postdoctoral investigators, or doctoral candidates at an NCI-designated Cancer Center, Comprehensive Cancer Center, Basic Laboratory Cancer Center, or their associated educational institutions.

Funding will be awarded to a U.S. institution, while work may be accomplished in collaboration with international researchers. Organizations receiving the ICI funds must be currently recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity under sections 501(c)(3) or 509(a)(1), (2), or (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. When collaborating with international researchers, the U.S. institution must certify that they will handle the funds according to the terms of U.S. laws and the grant. Provided that these requirements are met, there is NO limit to the percentage of the grant that can go toward the work of the international researcher.
