Fund a research award

Gloved hand with test tube

Research Awards are a chance to fund a specific type of cancer research. Your Research Award will help fund a Cancer Council research grant at a leading Victorian hospital, university, or research centre.

How does it work?

Donors and fundraising supporters who contribute $5,000 or more are invited to accept a Research Award. The award can be in your name, your organisation’s name, or can be named in honor of someone you care about. You'll be acknowledged for your generosity in the Cancer Council Annual Review.

Types of Research Awards:

  • Donor Research Award
    For donors contributing $5,000 or more in a given year or wanting to fund a continuing Research Award.
  • Fundraising Research Award
    For fundraising individuals or teams raising $5,000 or more in a year, who choose to allocate this money towards a particular cancer research area.
  • Corporate Research Award
    For corporations that make a donation of $5,000 or more in any given year.

Please note that all Research Grants are subject to availability.
