The Cancer Consortium provides a variety of funding opportunities for the purpose of supporting existing members and recruiting new ones, with the ultimate goal of stimulating innovative cancer research. Opportunities include Pilot Awards, New Investigator Awards, and Catchment Area Health Pilot Awards.
Consortium developmental awards are funded through a combination of Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) funds and philanthropic donations. Applications for each award are evaluated by a committee of Consortium faculty reviewers.
Eligibility and application requirements are different for each award. For more information, please review the description and RFA for each individual award.
To be notified of CCSG administrative supplement opportunities, please subscribe to our distribution list. If you are already a Consortium member, you should automatically receive funding opportunity announcements.
Funds are available from the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium (“The Consortium”) Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) to support cancer-related pilot projects.

Funds are available from the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium ("The Consortium") Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) to provide developmental support to new or junior faculty who are establishing their research within the Consortium. These funds provide a flexible source of funding designed to allow new investigators to work toward obtaining future, independent research funding.
This competition will provide five to six awards of up to $80,000 direct costs. Full facilities and administrative costs as allowable will be awarded in addition to this amount.

Funds are available from the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium (Consortium)’s Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and non-sponsored funds to support new cancer-related pilot projects or research directions focused on the Consortium’s catchment area, which now includes the entire state of Washington. Please see page 1 of RFA for more information about the cancer burden in the catchment area.
The research plan should address research on cancers relevant to the catchment area and/or the populations that face the highest burden or cancer disparities in the state. Please see pages 1-2 of the RFA. This competition will fund at least one project, at a minimum of $80,000 in direct costs, for one year.
Consortium members are eligible for this pilot funding. Only one Principal Investigator applicant per Cancer Consortium Research Program will be accepted (see section “B. Application Format – Page limits and attachments #1” for more details).

The Cancer Consortium Survivorship Program https://www.fredhutch.org/survivorship) invites proposals of high impact and innovation that will promote new research directions focused on cancer survivors. The goal of this award is to stimulate cross-institutional collaborations (Fred Hutch, UW, Seattle Children’s) and/or new collaborations between Consortium investigators who have not previously worked together.
