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?

Individual donors, teams or corporations 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.

Cancer types you can help fund:

  • Bone

  • Melanoma

  • Low Survival Cancers – this includes, oesophageal, stomach, brain, lung and liver cancer types

  • Prostate

  • Leukaemia and Lymphoma

  • Breast

  • Anal and Bowel cancers

Please note that all Research Grants are subject to availability.
