Cancer Council WA, in partnership with Government of Western Australia, Western Australian Health Translation Network, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, The University of Western Australia and Telethon Kids Institute, are seeking EOI applications for the Collaborative Cancer Grant Scheme. A total of $250,000 is available in this grant round.
Expressions of Intent will be sought in March 2017, for up to 10 cancer research projects to commence in 2018; funding support of $25,000 – $50,000 will be awarded for each project to encourage collaboration among early to mid-career researchers (E-MCRs). These grants aim to improve research quality and increase the competitiveness of WA early to mid-career cancer researchers by helping researchers obtain preliminary data and build collaborative networks.
Two unique features of these grants are: each application is required to have at least one chief investigator from a minimum of three West Australian Research Institutions; and all chief investigators must be E-MCRs.
For EOI details and guidance please visit the Cancer Council WA website: https://www.cancerwa.asn.au/research/funding/collaborative_cancer_grant_scheme/ – Application forms will be available from 1 March 2017. Shortlisted applicants will move to the full application stage which opens in May.
