Current Funding Opportunities
We are very pleased to report that we are funding 38 researchers in 2013.
Applications for 2014 have now closed and will be announced by Cancer Australia in December 2013.
Cure Cancer Australia Foundation funds early-career researchers as Chief Investigator of their project, in order to advance their research and to increase their competitiveness for funding from other granting agencies in the future. Cure Cancer Australia Foundation wishes to fund innovative, high-achieving, early-career researchers, and will be assessing the applicant’s track record (relative to oppportunity) and publications. The funding may be used for the applicant’s own salary, or the salary of a research assistant, and/or research materials for the specified project. Cure Cancer Australia Foundation has channelled close to $17 million of grants to over 430 researchers. Some who received this early-career seed funding are now among Australia’s most prominent cancer researchers. We invite you to apply to join them.
Cure Cancer Australia Foundation offers this funding in partnership with Cancer Australia’s 2013 round of the Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS). Further information about this grants scheme can be found at www.canceraustralia.gov.au. The Guide to Applicants, Additional Questions Forms, a template Funding Agreement and a link through to the NHMRC website have specific links to relevant NHMRC information which can be found at: http://www.nhmrc.gov.au/grants/apply/projects/index.htm.
