Cancer Research Trust NZ is pleased to announce the closing dates for the 2020 main grant round

Research projects may be in the field of cancer-related public health, or the biomedical, clinical, epidemiological or psychosocial aspects of cancer. Initiatives in the field of Palliative care will also be considered. Our grant round is highly competitive with fewer projects able to be funded than we would like, but we give equal consideration to projects throughout the cancer control continuum.

Closing date Tuesday September 1st 2020

Professional Development Awards Round 2 (Max $3,000 – for travel after Jan 1st 2021). There will be another PDA round in March 2021 for Travel after May 1st 2021. NOTE RE COVID-19: while we will accept applications that involve international travel, at the time of review we will only progress those that appear tenable and safe, given knowledge about restrictions and safety available at that time. This also applies to Professional Development Event Grant applications for overseas speakers. Please contact me in advance if in doubt.

The Trust is an independent and financially secure charity, but to continue the level of funding required to maintain New Zealand at the forefront of cancer research, donations from the public are essential, and gratefully received. The Trust’s very modest overheads are met from investment income so every cent of every $ is applied to the work of the Trust.

Please consider setting up a regular donation to the Trust. One-off donations can also be made, or we can set up Automatic Payments – just ask for the form.

We also have a Givealittle page.

All annual donations of $5 are tax deductible and receipts will be issued.

Best wishes,
