Worldwide Cancer Research - Research Grants 2014-2 (£ 250,000)
Worldwide Cancer Research (formerly known as AICR) invites applications for its Research Grants. Deadline for submissions is October 31, 2014. Grants are awarded to support fundamental or translational research into the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. This remit is usually interpreted conservatively. The maximum budget permitted is £ 250,000, but it should be noted that most of the 3-year grants have a budget of less than £ 200,000.
Project grants from 12 to 36 months in length are awarded to principal investigators based at any not-for-profit research institute in the world. Grants cover the direct costs of the project including research consumables and reagents, the salaries of research staff working directly on the project, travel to conferences or to visit collaborators, and any essential services or small pieces of equipment. The host institution must cover all indirect and overhead costs. This is not negotiable even if it is standard practice for your institution to charge overheads to external grants.
The goal of Worldwide Cancer Research is to fund scientific research that may, in future, help reduce the incidence of cancer or improve cancer survival.
