LLS is no longer accepting Letters of Intent for the 2018-2019 Specialized Center of Research Program application cycle. Please return to this page next spring for 2019-2020 application cycle schedule.
In addition to the traditional SCOR initiatives, this year LLS is offering a special Pediatric Blood Cancer Research Initiative. Please Download the Pediatric RFP and see the below flier for more information.
A SCOR team will be judged as a unit and funding will not be available for otherwise meritorious but non-synergistic parts of an application. The quality and significance of the Projects and Cores, and the enhanced productivity that is likely to be achieved by linking the investigators, are the primary determinants of funding decisions.
Each SCOR is comprised of a minimum of three scientific Projects and a minimum of two scientific Cores that will cooperate under the leadership of a SCOR Director. There must be objective evidence of interdisciplinary research among the Projects and Cores.
The maximal annual total cost is $1,000,000 for each year of the five year grant. The maximum annual direct cost is $833,333.33 while the maximum annual indirect cost is $166,666.66. The SCOR Director has the authority to budget these funds among the various Projects and Cores.
