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 405 student fellowships through an annual allocation of $2 million in Pelotonia revenue for this program. Scholarship recipients so far include more than 179 undergraduates, 114 graduates, six medical students, 92 postdoctoral fellows and 35 international scholars.
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, 2 medical students and 5 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.
