Grant Size
Upper £250,000GBP 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. Worldwide Cancer Research offers grants for 1-3 year research projects. Grants cover the direct costs of the project including research consumables, 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 specialist or unusual equipment. The host institution must cover all indirect and overhead costs. Successful applications submitted to the March 2021 grant round will be offered a grant starting from January 1, 2022.

Eligibility
Project grants are awarded to a single researcher, known as the Principal Investigator (PI) or grantholder. The PI must be employed at a recognised, non-profit research institution anywhere in the world. Honorary contracts and emeritus positions are usually acceptable. The PI will usually be a PhD-qualified tenured or tenure-track research group leader. Post-doctoral researchers with more than three years postdoctoral research experience at the time of application are also eligible to apply for a grant. Post-doctoral applicants who are not yet independent researchers must name their group head as co-applicant on the grant. The PI must have a contract of employment that will last for at least the duration of the grant requested, or be able to show evidence that their current contract would be extended if the grant were awarded. A research group can only submit a single application to Worldwide Cancer Research in a grant round. Individuals can be PI on one application and a co-applicant or collaborator on other applications at the same time. Other senior researchers who would be substantially involved in managing the project can be included as co-applicants. Co-applicants should be at senior post-doctoral level or above (i.e. with greater than 3-years post-doctoral research experience). Co-applicants do not need to be at the same institution as the PI. If the principal investigator on an application is successful in a grant round, they cannot submit an application in the next grant round. You cannot apply to Worldwide Cancer Research for a project grant (either as a PI or co-applicant) if you are currently applying for, or have received, funding from the tobacco industry or bodies substantially funded by the tobacco industry, within the last 10 years.
Description
Worldwide Cancer Research provides funding for basic, fundamental or translational research into the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer.Applications on cancer symptoms or treatment side effects are accepted only if there is a very clear link to improving cancer survival. Studies investigating the biology of a side effect or symptom alone are unlikely to be accepted.Basic studies into fundamental cellular processes, mechanisms and molecules are within remit if it is clear that the aim of the research is to improve the understanding of cancer biology. If a project is to study the normal functioning of cellular processes, mechanisms or molecules - or to study very basic models such as yeast - evidence supporting the relevance to cancer biology must be laid out.
