Background. The American Cancer Society (ACS) allocated competitive funding for Research Project Grants (RPG) to investigators and health care professionals early in their careers. This study explored the process of applying for an ACS grant and determined the differences, if any, in applicants that were funded and applicants that were not funded. Methods. Applicants applying for RPG funding in the spring of 1996 were sent a questionnaire. Results. Most variables between funded and unfunded applicants did not show significant differences. The perception of the application process varied significantly between groups. Conclusions. The application process of RPG was highly valued among funded applicants.
