Ride Grant Submission

2021 Ride Grant Submission Form

The overarching mission of THE RIDE is to advance state of the art cancer research and treatment to serve cancer patients and families in Wisconsin and beyond. Federal research funding is exceptionally challenging and funds raised from THE RIDE help bridge this funding gap to make cancer researchers at the UW competitive at the highest level. THE RIDE began in 2016 and since then has raised nearly 1.3 million dollars for UW cancer research and awarded money to 40 researchers, collaborative programs and students.


Must have a UW Professor title series (including Assistant, Associate and full Professor).

Applicants are encouraged to participate in THE RIDE held on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Scholarship recipients are strongly encouraged to participate in THE RIDE as an active member of THE RIDE community.
