Graduate Training in Disparities Research (GTDR) Grants

  • Eligibility: Applications are open to researchers with a doctoral degree at academic institutions who are conducting breast cancer disparities research and are committed to support a training program with a minimum of 3 graduate students/trainees (those in a masters and/ or doctoral program) per year.
  • Funding Level: Up to $135,000 per year for up to 3 years for a total of $405,000.
  • Training Requirements: The proposed research training program should leverage the current training and research activities available at the applicant institution while also providing new training opportunities that are not currently offered. The program should provide a combination of didactic coursework and hands-on laboratory, clinical and/or public health research experience.  Strong preference will be given to programs that provide a solid plan for recruiting trainees from populations affected by disparities in breast cancer outcomes.
