Four types of grants are awarded annually:
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. Society of Surgical Oncology accredited institutions in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut may submit requests for funding for fellowships. We invite Directors of programs that are directly related to breast cancer services to apply for an Education and Outreach Grant. We do not solicit grant applications or restrict any breast cancer research topics from consideration.
"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."

"Women need to know [breast cancer] affects everyone around you. If you love yourself, and those who love you, you’ll watch your body."
