Once the next CARRA recruitment period is announced, individuals will need to follow these steps if they want to be considered during the application process:
  • Express an interest and receive detailed information.
  • Meet the basic eligibility requirements of membership.
  • Submit an application, which then goes through a multi-stage review process.
  • If selected for CARRA membership, affirm a willingness to follow NCI CARRA membership guidelines related to conflict of interest and related policies.

CARRA applications are screened for completeness and submission date. On-time, completed applications are then reviewed by a panel of NCI scientific staff, NCI communications and education staff, and (non-CARRA) consumer advocates.
