Impact

It is easy to track and attribute V Scholar funding to future discoveries these young scientists make in their career.

Plant the Seed

The V Scholar grant gives investigators the space and time to generate research data that can be used to apply for even bigger grants to sustain their research long term and keep these brightest of all scholars in the field of cancer research.

ROI

V Scholar grants are small investments with huge potential for returns, for both the V Scholars and for cancer patients.
