Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program

Stipends and Benefits


Each stipend will be determined by the individual's degree and years of relevant postdoctoral experience. Stipend levels increase with the number of years of postdoctoral experience. Annual increases may be given. Specialty competitive allowances are given for degrees in epidemiology or biostatistics, for JDs or MD/PhDs, and for board-certified MDs engaged in patient care. Stipends are subject to change depending on federal guidelines and funding availability.

Health Insurance and Leave

Fellows will receive individual or family health insurance and paid federal holidays, annual leave, sick leave, and family leave.

Travel and Relocation

The NCI may cover the cost of relocation expenses up to a maximum of $3,000 (i.e., travel, shipment of household goods, and temporary storage, if necessary) for the fellow and his/her dependents for one move to the area where MPH training will be pursued, or to the Rockville, Maryland area. Reimbursement will be in accordance with prevailing government regulations. No return travel is authorized.

Expenses are provided for travel to meetings and training each year for each fellow, excluding the MPH year, based on funding availability.
