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 433 student fellowships through an annual allocation of $2 million in Pelotonia revenue for this program. Scholarship recipients so far include 205 undergraduates, 128 graduates, 94 postdoctoral fellows and six medical students. Six fellows have received two awards – either undergraduate and graduate or graduate and postdoctoral.

Funding has provided international research experiences for 21 Ohio State undergraduate students in India and Brazil, and brought 14 students from India and Brazil to contribute to science in Ohio State labs.

From October 2015-October 2016, the program awarded 65 fellowships to students at all levels of scholarship for conducting cancer research in the labs of faculty mentors. Recipients included 25 undergrads, 16 grad students, 17 postdoctoral fellows, two medical students and five international scholars.

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.
