Grants to USA, Canada, and International individual researchers and teams to support efforts to find treatments for Ewing Sarcoma. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support proposals that examine innovative concepts with the potential for high impact and quick movement to improvements in outcomes for patients.

Requirements and Considerations:
- Applications with the potential to lead to clinical trials within three years will be prioritized
- Projects involving gene therapy, immunotherapy or the use of novel techniques like CRISPR will be well received.
- If basic science, applications must have the potential for game-changing results.
- Proposals without clear path to the therapeutic interventions will receive a low priority.
- Both hypothesis-driven and hypothesis-neutral (e.g., drug screening and genome-wide molecular characterization) approaches will be considered, as long as the outcome of the project leads to actionable therapeutic intervention within the suggested time frame.
- Cross discipline collaboration is encouraged, with each investigator’s role and responsibility clearly outlined in the proposal.
- Applications must include proposed timeline with anticipated milestones.
- The Principal Investigator will report progress in person or by videoconference every six months and will submit a written report of progress annually.

Applications that are innovative, risk-taking, and use novel tools and methods will be prioritized. Applications may be from individuals or teams, with collaboration highly valued.
