In line with The Stewart Trust’s mission to invest in innovative, cutting-edge cancer research that may accelerate and advance progress toward a cure for cancer, applications are invited from nominees conducting cancer research at NCI-designated cancer centers. The Pew-Stewart Scholars Program is independent from the Pew Scholars Program, and it follows a different set of guidelines and procedures for nominating an applicant whose research is related to cancer.
In May 2015, a letter of invitation and application instructions will be sent to the leaders of the National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers for the 2016 application. Centers are expected to complete a comprehensive internal selection process in order to identify and select one nominee. Nominations will not be considered after July 15, 2015.
The office of sponsored research should distribute this invitation and award eligibility details to all investigators through a campus-wide email announcement or website posting.
- Interested applicants should submit pre-proposal material to an internal selection committee for consideration.
- To nominate a candidate, a member of the internal selection committee must complete an online survey, describing the selection process used by the institution, and submitting the name and contact information of the chosen applicant by July 15, 2015. Nominations of applicants to the program will not be considered after July 15, 2015.
- Once the Pew program office has received the completed survey and the name and contact information of the selected applicant, login information will be emailed directly to the selected applicant. The online application web site will open August 3, 2015 and the submission deadline is November 16, 2015. Nominees will gain access to the secure application portal on August 3, 2015, which includes detailed instructions and an applicant guide, at http://apply.pewstewartscholars.org.
