Inclusion Criteria: 1. Female aged at least 18 years on day of signing informed consent 2. ECOG Performance Status of 0-1 3. Patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent endometrial cancer FIGO stage III-IV and histologically-confirmed (any histology except sarcoma and carcinosarcoma) 4. Patients may have received adjuvant treatment (platinum-based cytotoxic chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy). Patients having received prior chemotherapy must have completed their treatment at least 6 months prior to registration for protocol therapy. Patients having received prior radiotherapy must have completed their treatment at least 28 days prior to registration for protocol therapy 5. Have measurable disease based on RECIST v1.1 criteria 6. Availability of tumor samples for biomarker analysis 7. Endometrial cancer will include all carcinomas, including endometrioid carcinoma, papillary serous carcinoma, clear cell carcinoma 8. Adequate hematological function defined by absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500 × mm3, platelet count ≥ 100,000 × mm3, and hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL (may have been transfused) 9. Adequate hepatic function defined by a total bilirubin level ≤ 1.5 × the upper limit of normal (ULN) range and AST and ALT levels ≤ 2.5 × ULN for all subjects (or ≤ 5 x ULN if liver metastases are present) 10. Adequate renal function defined by an estimated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min according to the Cockcroft-Gault formula or serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 ULN (for local institutional standard method) 11. Alkaline phosphatase < 1.5 x ULN for the institution (if > 1.5 x ULN, then alkaline phosphatase liver fraction must be < 1.5 ULN) 12. Be willing and able to provide written informed consent/assent for the trial 13. Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test (serum hCG) at screening. Women of childbearing potential are those who have not been surgically sterilized or have not been free from menses for ≥1 year 14. Highly effective contraception for females if the risk of conception exists. (Note: The effects of the trial drug on the developing human fetus are unknown; thus, women of childbearing potential must agree to use 2 highly effective contraception, defined as methods with a failure rate of less than 1 % per year). Highly effective contraception is required at least 28 days prior, throughout and for at least 60 days after Avelumab treatment Exclusion Criteria: 1. Women who are pregnant or lactating 2. Patients with brain metastases, except those meeting the following criteria: - Brain metastases that have been treated locally and are clinically stable for at least 2 weeks prior to enrollment - No ongoing neurological symptoms that are related to the brain localization of the disease (sequelae that are a consequence of the treatment of the brain metastases are acceptable) - patients must be either off steroids or on a stable or decreasing dose of <10mg daily prednisone (or equivalent) 3. Prior Anticancer treatment for advanced disease and/or prior therapy with an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-PD-L2 agent. Previous hormonal therapy for advanced disease is allowed, but treatment must be discontinued at least 28 days prior to registration for protocol therapy 4. History of anaphylaxis, or uncontrolled asthma (that is, 3 or more features of partially controlled asthma) 5. Known prior severe hypersensitivity to investigational product or any component in its formulations, including known severe hypersensitivity reactions to monoclonal antibodies (NCI CTCAE v4.03 Grade ≥ 3) 6. Prior organ transplantation, including allogeneic stem cell transplantation 7. Significant acute or chronic infections including, among others: - Known history of testing positive test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or known acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) - Positive test for hepatitis B surface antigen and / or confirmatory hepatitis C RNA (if anti-hepatitis C antibody tested positive) - Evidence of interstitial lung disease or active non-infectious pneumonitis. - Active infection requiring systemic therapy - Known history of active Tuberculosis Bacillus (TB) 8. Active autoimmune disease that might deteriorate when receiving an immunostimulatory agent: - Subjects with diabetes type I, vitiligo, psoriasis, hypo- or hyperthyroid disease not requiring immunosuppressive treatment are eligible - Subjects requiring hormone replacement with corticosteroids are eligible if the steroids are administered only for the purpose of hormonal replacement and at doses ≤ 10 mg or 10 mg equivalent prednisone per day - Administration of steroids through a route known to result in a minimal systemic exposure (topical, intranasal, intro-ocular, or inhalation) are acceptable 9. Persisting toxicity related to prior therapy of Grade >1 NCI-CTCAE v 4.03; however, alopecia and sensory neuropathy Grade ≤ 2 is acceptable 10. Another primary malignancy within the past five years (except for non-melanoma skin cancer and cervical carcinoma in situ). 11. Concurrent treatment with immunosuppressive or investigational agents EXCEPT for the following: a. intranasal, inhaled, topical steroids, or local steroid injection (e.g., intra-articular injection); b. Systemic corticosteroids at physiologic doses ≤ 10 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent; c. Steroids as premedication for hypersensitivity reactions (e.g., CT scan premedication). 12. Active cardiac disease, defined as: - Myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris within 6 months of the first date of study therapy, - History of serious ventricular arrhythmia (i.e., ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation), high-grade atrio-ventricular block, or other cardiac arrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmic medications (except for atrial fibrillation that is well controlled with antiarrhythmic medication); history of QT interval prolongation. - New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or greater congestive heart failure, or left ventricular ejection fraction of < 40%. 13. Known alcohol or drug abuse 14. Vaccination within 4 weeks of the first dose of avelumab and while on trial is prohibited except for administration of inactivated vaccines 15. Any psychiatric condition that would prohibit the understanding or rendering of informed consent 16. All other significant diseases (for example, inflammatory bowel disease, uncontrolled asthma), which, in the opinion of the Investigator, All other significant diseases (for example, inflammatory bowel disease, uncontrolled asthma) including recent or active suicidal ideation or behavior, which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may increase the risk associated with study participation or study treatment administration or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study.
