The Hope Foundation will again award funds for committee needs outside the scope of SWOG group meetings.
For 2018, any SWOG disease, research, or administrative committee chair may request up to $25,000 to support development needs not currently funded by the NCTN or NCORP grants. Applications for committee development funds will be reviewed in accordance with three 2018 deadlines: February 1, April 2, and June 1.
Requests may include support for communication or technology needs, additional personnel, or supplemental working group or planning meetings outside the spring and fall conferences. Funds are earmarked to build capacity and strengthen infrastructure within committees, and may not be used for direct research or specific trial support.
