Current Funding Opportunities 2014
The Leukaemia Foundation's 'Vision to Cure' is actively realised in our National Research Program (NRP). The NRP seeks to foster innovative research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of blood cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. The program includes grants-in-aid to provide establishing researchers seed funding for novel research projects, whilst our fellowships and scholarships program aims to encourage talented young scientists, medical graduates and researchers to pursue a career in basic, applied or translational research to find cures and better ways to care for patients and families living with haematological malignancies.
We will consider funding applications from researchers up to 7 years postdoc, in all fields of research which will improve outcomes for people with blood cancers and related disorders. Relevance will be assessed by considering the likelihood of the proposed research having a significant impact for people affected by blood cancers.
In 2014 the following funding opportunities will be offered:
- Grants-in-aid for establishing researchers
- Supportive Care Research Grant-in-Aid
- Post Doctoral Fellowship
- PhD Scholarships
- PhD Scholarships (Clinical)
- A Clinical Trial through the PdCCRS with Cancer Australia
- NIG for WA Only
- DiGiacomo Honours Scholarship
- Career Establishment Grants
All applications to the NRP undergo peer review overseen by the Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee and its subcommittees – the Grant Review Committee and the Fellowships and Scholarships Review Committee. Unfortunately it is not possible to provide individual feedback to applicants as our peer review relies entirely upon the generosity of our expert volunteers.
All applications for funding in every state and territory are assessed through one national process. Where applicable, this includes applications for funds which are state specific. The Leukaemia Foundation NRP is listed on the Australian Competitive Grants Register.
All Leukaemia Foundation grants, fellowships and scholarships are GST exclusive.
Please read eligibility criteria carefully as there have been changes made to criteria of past years. Please note: Only Australian citizens and people holding a permanent resident visa for Australia are eligible to apply for these awards.
