The American Brain Tumor Association funds brain tumor research through medical fellowships. Fellowship recipients must undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure that the best questions are being asked and that the best research is being done.

Fellowship awards go to post-doctoral researchers in the amount of $50,000 for two years. The basic intent of the ABTA fellowship program is to encourage talented, junior investigators to enter, or remain in, the field of brain tumor research. These awards help to ensure that there are always dedicated, well-trained researchers.

The fellowships are offered to post-doctoral candidates whose intent is to pursue a career in brain tumor research. Applicants should be citizens of the United States or Canada, or have permanent residency status.

Criteria include:

  • Quality of the individual applicant
  • Quality of the training program
  • Research work being undertaken

Clinical training applications will not be considered.

Qualified applications are reviewed by the American Brain Tumor Association's distinguished Scientific Advisory Council. Awards are determined by ABTA's Board of Directors based upon the Advisors' recommendations.


Medical Student Summer Fellowships are intended to plant the seeds of neuro-oncology interest in bright, motivated students. Each award is $2,500 plus and additional $1,000 to the student whose paper is selected to receive the ABTA/Lucien J. Rubinstein Memorial Award.
