A Career Development Program for Early Career Investigators

The primary purpose of the Dr. Charles A. Coltman, Jr., Fellowship is to engage outstanding early career investigators from SWOG-affiliated institutions in learning clinical trial methodology within an academic and network group environment that will lead to independent clinical research, while honoring the legacy of long-time SWOG Chair and leader, Dr. Charles A. Coltman, Jr.

2-year fellowships of $50,000/year are provided as salary support ensuring that investigators’ time is protected for research in the clinic or laboratory. This program funds investigators in various stages of research careers at current SWOG-affiliated institutions. See RFA for full details and eligibility.
