The BCRP Predoctoral Traineeship Award was first offered in FY93. Since that time, 3,521 Predoctoral Traineeship Award applications have been received, and 1,195 have been recommended for funding. The Predoctoral Traineeship Award supports the training of promising graduate students studying breast cancer under the guidance of a designated mentor to prepare them for successful careers in breast cancer research. Under this award mechanism, the predoctoral trainee is considered the Principal Investigator (PI) and, as such, should write the application with appropriate direction from the mentor. The mentor, who may be a junior or senior faculty member, must clearly demonstrate a commitment to guiding the PIís research and training, and must have a track record in breast cancer research. If the mentor is not an experienced breast cancer researcher, then a formal co-mentorship by an established breast cancer researcher is required.Applications should emphasize:ē The PIís talent, potential, and commitment to breast cancer research,ē The mentorís (and co-mentorís, if applicable) qualifications and experience in breast cancer research,ē The level of the mentorís (and co-mentorís, if applicable) support of the PIís research and training,ē The strength of the training program in breast cancer research, andē The institutionís commitment to training future leaders in breast cancer research.
