Grants-in-Aid applications

Commencing in 2020, all applicants for Cancer Council Victoria Grants-in-Aid will apply directly to Cancer Council Victoria. 

All applications go through a rigorous peer-review process. For many years this process was undertaken in partnership with the National Health and Medical Research Council, who provided us with initial assessments and rankings. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the collaboration of NHMRC with Cancer Council Victoria. This relationship has been of great benefit to the Victorian cancer research community.

We are currently finalising the Grants-in-Aid process for 2020. We anticipate applications will open in June 2020. Please check this website for more information in the coming months or contact us on
