Long-term International Fellowship

The Long-term International Fellowship (LIFe) provides early-career oncologists in low- to middle-income countries the support and resources needed to advance their training by deepening their relationship with a mentor from the United States, Canada, or the European Union and his or her institution.

Through a one-year medical fellowship, the recipient will earn valuable training and experience with which they can affect change in cancer care in their home country. Recipients must return to their home institutions after completing their international fellowship and are expected to disseminate the knowledge they have gained.

Eligible applicants must complete an application, which includes a section to be filled out by the prospective mentor at a cancer center in the U.S., Canada, or the E.U. 

Applications for the 2015 LIFe open on October 15 and will be due on December 5, 2014.  For additional information, please read the 2015 Request for Proposals
