The Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) program is the universal, umbrella fellowship
program for domestic fellows (non-US citizens must have a permanent resident card
to be eligible for this program).* The program is intended to provide high
quality training for high school, university, graduate, law, and medical school
students and graduates. Training opportunities also provide continuing education
and experience within the National Cancer Institute's various organizational components
under the guidance of a sponsor.
Participants in this program do not perform a service for the Public Health Service.
Rather, the Fellows are accepted for training in scientific disciplines that will
enhance public health efforts to prevent, diagnose, or treat cancer. Fellows
receive a stipend and are considered to be in training status. They are not
considered employees of the Federal government.
