Deadline extended to September 12! CGA-IGC Grant Opportunities

The grant submission deadline is being extended to Monday, September 12th! We recognize grant funding as an important mechanism to support our members and promote a pipeline of diverse individuals becoming leaders in the field.


For the 2022 grant round, we are offering two awards:

  1. CGA-IGC Award

  • research or project awards that advance science, clinical care, or advocacy for patients with inherited gastrointestinal cancers.

2. CGA-IGC & Fight CRC Early Career Award

  • supports research, quality improvement, or patient engagement projects that improve the lives of patients and/or their family members with hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes, early-age onset colorectal cancer, or familial colorectal cancer.


You now have additional time to get your research proposal submitted!


Review the eligibility criteria for both the CGA-IGC Award and CGA-IGC & Fight CRC Early Career Award - there are clear step by step instructions to make the submission process fast and simple. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us.


We also invited some of the previous grant recipients, Drs Rifkin, Singh and Burton-Chase, to share their story and it's humbling to see how the CGA grants have contributed to early research successes and career development and we hope that our grants will continue to serve as a stepping stone into a scientific career that ultimately benefits patients and their families with #HereditaryGICancer.


We've been funding projects to advance the care of patients and families with hereditary cancers syndromes since 2012. CGA-IGC’s continued investment in career development will foster clinical innovations and mold our future leaders.


Now it's time for you to create your own #HereditaryGICancer research story!
