The deadline to submit an application is July 31, 2022.
The award recognizes the importance of the unique challenges associated with the posttreatment services for survivors, especially as they transition to non-oncology adolescent and/or adult health care services.
Eligibility criteria include the following:
The Champion’s Prize will be presented as part of the Children’s Cancer Cause annual event in New York City in November 2022.
Established in 2020, the Survivorship Champion’s Prize has awarded a total of $50,000 in funds to prestigious survivorship programs around the country that are doing groundbreaking work to improve the long-term outlook for survivors.
