Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer. 100% of the funds raised by this groundbreaking event go to innovative and life saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
In its first four years, Pelotonia has raised over $40 million dollars and, through the Pelotonia Fellowship Program, a minimum of $2 million will be dedicated to train our most promising students who will help cure cancer. Cancer is a complex disease and curing it will take a multidisciplinary effort from researchers, including students, in different fields.
Now accepting applications! The Pelotonia Fellowship Program is proud to provide postdoctoral, undergraduate, graduate, and medical student fellowships to our most accomplished, truly spectacular student scientists.
