Our Scholars

With the establishment of the Kimmel Scholars Program, the Sidney Kimmel Foundation changed the future of cancer research.

The Program funded the brightest young cancer researchers at the outset of their careers, creating the next generation of leaders in the fight against cancer. Annually, 15 of the nation’s most promising researchers received the $200,000 Award, selected by a world class Medical Advisory Board.


The Kimmel Scholars Program has closed.  The 2017 Scholars are the final class of Award recipients.
