Breast Cancer Alliance raises money to provide four types of annual grants:
We invite clinical doctors and research scientists whose primary focus is breast cancer research to apply for either the Exceptional Project or Young Investigator research grants.
We invite Society of Surgical Oncology-accredited institutions in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to apply for breast surgical fellowship grants as long as their program has been in place for a minimum of two years.
We invite directors whose programs offer breast cancer services to underserved patients to apply for an Education and Outreach Grant.
We do not solicit grant applications or restrict any breast cancer research topics from consideration.
Watch this beautiful message expressing 25 years of gratitude to Breast Cancer Alliance from multi-grant award recipient, Memorial Sloan Kettering.

YALE UNIVERSITY, GRANT RECIPIENT AND MEMBER OF THE EXTERNAL REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR RESEARCH
I have had the privilege to serve on the Scientific Review Board for Breast Cancer Alliance for the past 8 years. In reviewing proposals, I have been witness to some of the most creative and transformative new ideas in basic and translational breast cancer research. Many of these ideas are so new that the researchers do not have sufficient data to compete for larger grants from the National Cancer Institute, Komen Foundation or American Cancer Society. The support of Breast Cancer Alliance is absolutely crucial to get this work off the ground…The Breast Cancer Alliance is a vital catalyst, enabling some of the world’s greatest scientists to take creative new approaches to understand the basic biology of breast cancer and to translate these findings into new treatments.
Breast Cancer Alliance funding is creating opportunities for my lab to engage in higher-risk projects and to interact with a broad range of experts. The importance of this collaborative team in science cannot be overstated.
