Funding the most

promising research

Awarded annually, operating grants provide salary and research funding of $120,000 for two years.

The Cancer Research Society has established a rigorous selection process that is carried out by our committees of experts so that our grants are awarded to the most promising researchers and projects across Canada.

We rely on peer review which is the internationally accepted benchmark for ensuring quality and excellence in scientific research. Composed of scientists who are experts in the same field as the applicants, our scientific peer review committees devote considerable time and effort, on a volunteer basis, to assessing applications and making award recommendations that allow us to make the best funding decisions.
