Grants to USA, Canada, and International female researchers for research projects related to cancers that affect women. Priority will be given to female researchers from underrepresented populations. Eligible research projects are those that advance knowledge on breast and gynecological cancers.

The Victoria’s Secret Global Fund for Women's Cancers was established to accelerate innovation in cancer research for women, by women. This groundbreaking initiative will fund innovative research aimed at progressing outcomes for women's cancers and invest in the next generation of women scientists who represent the diverse population they serve. By focusing on prevention, detection, diagnostic, and treatment innovations for women’s cancers and advancing outcomes for cancer health disparities, Victoria’s Secret aims to improve and save the lives of millions of women around the world.

The Fund builds upon Victoria's Secret’s established commitment toward cancer research and education, with longstanding impact partner, Pelotonia. Through a transformational partnership with Pelotonia and the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR), The Victoria’s Secret Global Fund for Women's Cancers is proud to offer a series of grants programs for female researchers and clinicians working internationally, and at various stages of their careers.

The Victoria’s Secret Global Fund for Women’s Cancers Career Development Award, in partnership with Pelotonia & AACR is intended to fund innovative research projects in breast and gynecologic cancers and to invest in the next generation of female early-stage scientists domestically and globally. The aim of this award is to foster innovation in the understanding, prevention, interception, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast and gynecologic cancers with the goal of eliminating cancer health disparities and improving patient outcomes. The research proposed for funding may be in basic, translational, clinical, or population sciences. Proposals focused on research into the causes of cancer health disparities and approaches to achieve equity in outcomes as well as applicants belonging to racial or ethnic groups shown to be underrepresented in the cancer-related sciences workforce are especially encouraged.
