Pelotonia Fellowship Program
The Pelotonia Fellowship Program trains promising and accomplished undergraduate, graduate, medical and postdoctoral students from any discipline at Ohio State who have the potential to become independent cancer researchers.
The Fellowship Program started in 2010 and has awarded 292 student fellowships through an annual allocation of $2 million in Pelotonia revenue for this program. Scholarship recipients so far include more than 129 undergraduates, 77 graduates, four medical students, 61 postdoctoral fellows and 21 international scholars.
From October 2013-October 2014, the program awarded 65 fellowships to students at all levels of scholarship for conducting cancer research in the labs of faculty mentors. Recipients included 36 undergrads, 18 grad students, and 11 postdoctoral fellows.
The awards are made by a Pelotonia Fellowship Committee that oversees the program and includes some of Ohio State’s most distinguished basic, translational and clinical researchers from many disciplines.
