Gail Baird Scholarship Program

Gail Baird Scholarship Program

Thank you for your interest in the Ovarian Cancer National Conference Scholarship Program.

Completed applications are due no later than 5pm ET April 17, 2020. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. You may not hear back from someone right away.

Please consider whether you are healthy enough to attend. If you are concerned about your health and your ability to attend the conference, we encourage you to apply only when you are reasonably confident that you would be able to attend if offered a scholarship.

As we receive a large volume of applications and have limited funding, we encourage all applicants to complete the application in its entirety, and to provide thoughtful answers that provide as much information as possible. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, with special consideration given to those who have never attended a National Conference before.

We can bring a very limited number of caregivers to the National Conference on scholarship. Caregivers should apply to attend only if their presence is medically necessary. Scholarship funds are very limited, and every caregiver who attends who attends the Conference on a scholarship takes a spot that otherwise could go to a survivor/patient!

All communications about the status of your application will be communicated via email. Please provide an email address you check regularly.

For questions or more information, please contact OCRA at (212) 268-1002 or email

The Gail Baird Scholarship Program is supported by a generous contribution from the Gail Baird Foundation.
