How to apply for funding

North West Cancer Research provide funding for project grants, key posts and equipment grants. If you are interested in funding for fellowships, studentships, PhDs or Centre funding within our area, please contact the Chief Executive Officer, Alastair Richards for further information. 


Project grants

Our funding round is now open and grant applications will need to be received by Monday 9 April 2018. Applications received by that date will be reviewed by our Scientific Advisory Group when it meets on Thursday 5 July 2018.

Researchers within the North West of England and North Wales are invited to apply for project grants twice a year. We provide funding for three main research areas:

  • Basic
  • Translational
  • Preventative 

The research we fund must have a demonstrable impact on people within North West England and North Wales and principal investigators must be based within our regional footprint. We will invest in researchers at every stage of their career to develop the cancer researchers of the future.

Projects should be up to three years in length.

As members of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) all applications are subjected to peer review by external reviewers who are experts in the particular area of research. Each application will then be scored out of six by our scientific advisory group, which is made up of internationally acclaimed scientists. A minimum score of five is required for the application to be funded.

Please ensure that an electronic version of the completed application form is sent to research@nwcr.org

Before completing and submitting an application, please ensure that you have read and understood the project grants guidance notes.

We cannot guarantee funding for any application submitted.
