Cancer Care Grants

The NVIDIA Foundation’s Compute the Cure Cancer Care grant program awards four $50,000 grants a year to support the work of cancer-focused non-profit organizations working in the following areas:

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

Grant recipients are selected by NVIDIA employees. An employee review committee assesses 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.
