The Foundation annually selects junior clinical or post-doctoral fellows to be Forbeck Scholars. Scholars apply to a specific Forbeck Forum. They need to have a very high level of scientific achievement as well as relevance to the topic. Awardees attend the Forum they applied to and then the Scholar Retreat for the following three years. During the Forum, recipients of the award have an unrivaled opportunity to interact with international experts in a particular field of cancer research. The Scholar Retreat, which they attend for the subsequent three years, gives them further opportunities to interact with their peers from different fields of cancer research and meet with international experts to discuss their work. Existing awardees have found these interactions invaluable in developing collaborations as well as opening up a variety of career opportunities.
Act fast, applications need to be submitted no later than Wednesday, October 18, 2023.
