It is important to search for available information on the fellowship. A maximized likelihood of achieving your goal will follow from first understanding the qualifications and then determining if you qualify. Before you even begin, be aware of the driving force for the American Cancer Society and their reason for offering the Postdoctoral Fellowship. Once that is done, you should determine if you have the possibility of being awarded the fellowship. Upon determining that you have a decent shot of actually being a recipient of the Postdoctoral Fellowship, then it is useful to fill out an application.

A crucial aspect in the process of trying for the fellowship is paying close attention to the application. Occasionally the process can be drawn-out and tiresome, but take the time to make sure that your work was done precisely and without omission. You don't want to be bumped on a technicality.

Once the application is sent off, it's important to know when the Postdoctoral Fellowship confers the award and makes payment of any funds in order to know whether or not it is possible to count on the fellowship to assist with any bills associated with your education and how it will help you out, as there may be restrictions in what can be paid with the Postdoctoral Fellowship. Increasingly, it is tough to find ways to manage the increasing costs of education, and being awarded the Postdoctoral Fellowship as a supplement to your own resources can be a huge help. If you don't end up getting the Postdoctoral Fellowship, continue looking, there will be alternative fellowships and you may find success elsewhere.
