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 both large and small grants
