Research Funding and Grants

We have funding available for Research projects and invite researchers in the field of cancer to submit Grant applications for funding of the following projects/programmes:

  • Type A projects – Our Type A Research projects are aimed at MBChB and PhD cancer researchers based at South African universities and research organisations.
  • Type B projects – Our Type B Research projects are often conceptualised, although this may be in conjunction with other institutions. These projects focus on looking at ways to reduce public exposure to environmental carcinogens.
  • Type C projects – Our Type C Research projects largely focus on aspects of CANSA patient-orientated services including optimising services to cancer patients and addressing their needs. The research is undertaken to strengthen our health promotion, awareness programmes, and support services based on evidence-based findings relevant to the South African population.
