Do you have a creative idea for how to cure cancer? If so, apply now for The Rangos Award for Creativity in Cancer Discovery. Awarded annually, The Rangos Award – named for entrepreneur and philanthropist John G. Rangos, Sr. – was created to inspire original ideas and innovative approaches on why some cancers are treatable, while others are not.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of faculty members from across the University. The top five ideas will be presented and judged live at an award ceremony next spring. The five finalists will receive cash awards: First place, $25,000 and The Rangos Award for Creativity in Cancer Discovery; second place, $12,500; third place, $6,250; fourth place, $3,125; and fifth place, $1,500.
Applications are due Dec. 31, 2012. Finalists will be announced Feb. 28, 2013, and the final competition and award ceremony will be held Mar. 29, 2013.
