SWOG Cancer Research Network is committed to providing patients within the VA Health Administration system access to cutting-edge cancer clinical trials and treatments throughout the National Cancer Institute’s National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). We facilitate that process by allowing veterans to participate in life‐changing therapies through clinical research.


Awards from the SWOG/Hope Foundation VA Integration Support Program support Veterans Health Administration Medical Centers’ efforts to start or to significantly improve their participation in oncology clinical trials within the NCTN.

Individual awards are provided for up to $50,000 (total cost) and may be spent over a 1‐year award period. Per Foundation policy, indirect costs are limited to 25%. The number of such awards and the duration of the award program contingent upon available funding at SWOG and The Hope Foundation.
