The Last Mile Sarcoma Research Award
SFA is pleased to announce that our grant application deadline for the Last Mile Sarcoma Research Award has been extended until November 1st.
The Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) is pleased to announce a research funding opportunity to provide one-year grants in the amount of $150,000, to support translational science research on the etiology, molecular biology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of human sarcomas.
In support of our overall mission to fund research and increase awareness and advocacy for sarcoma patients and their families, the goal of the SFA grant program is to encourage research that results in improved therapeutic options for sarcoma patients.
The total award amount is $150,000 for one year. Grants are awarded on an annual cycle from February 1, 2023 to January 31, 2024.
For each awarded grant, funding of up to $150,000 in total cost is available to cover equipment, supplies and other expenses in support of research within the period of performance. In addition, the following funding restrictions apply:
- No more than 10% of the total cost amount can be applied to indirect cost (e.g., $15,000 indirect cost toward the $150,000 total cost of the grant)
- The SFA does not permit funds to be used for Principal Investigator (PI) salaries. However, applicants are permitted to request money for the payment of salaries for non-faculty post-docs, fellows, and technicians, if applicable. No more than 50% of total cost can be used for salaries (e.g., $75,000 for the $150,000 award).
