Cancer research grants

Cancer Council NSW is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. Our goal is to fund world-class, ground-breaking research to cover all aspects of cancer control (prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship) and to drive major advances in research. Our research commitment in the last decade has been $116 million. 

Funds are awarded for research which is deemed (i) through a process of peer review to be of the highest scientific merit; and (ii) through a process of consumer review to be of value to the community which supports us. 

Cancer Council NSW offers four types of research grants

Project, Program, Strategic Research Partnerships (STREP) and in partnership with Cancer Australia, Priority-driven Collaborative grants (PdCCRS).
