Pelotonia Fellowship Application System
Responsive image

Pelotonia, the annual grassroots bicycle tour established in 2009 to raise money for cancer research at the OSUCCC – James, has generated more than $156 million through rider pledges and donations. Thanks to the generous underwriters of the event, every dollar raised by riders since Pelotonia began goes to help our researchers translate scientific discoveries to innovative patient care and prevention strategies that contribute to Pelotonia's single goal of ending cancer. This includes the Pelotonia Fellowship Program that 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.

To join the more than 440 fellows, start the online application process below.
