Cancer Care Grants

The NVIDIA Foundation’s Compute the Cure Cancer Care grant program awards four $50,000 grants annually to support the work of cancer-focused nonprofit organizations working in
six areas:

Prevention | Screening | Diagnosis | Treatment | Survivorship | End-of-Life Care

Each year, we solicit proposals from nonprofits around the world. An employee review committee assesses these applications and selects a small group of finalists. All employees then have the opportunity to vote for their favorite to help us determine the four recipients.
