Beat Cancer Project funding opportunities

Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project is a South Australian state-wide initiative intended to support and advance cancer research within the state. A collaboration between Cancer Council SA, the State Government and the South Australian universities, the Beat Cancer Project is the largest funder of cancer research in the state outside of the Federal Government.

The Beat Cancer Project aims to increase funding for cancer research, increase the capacity for researchers to attract more national and international research grants, and build a stronger cancer research workforce and broader research infrastructure in South Australia.

Successful applicants will be required to enter into a funding agreement with SAHMRI which includes requirements to meet with a representative of Cancer Council SA once a year to provide information in relation to the research being undertaken and provide a biography and synopsis of the research. The funding agreement also contains a number of requirements in relation to the acknowledgement of the funding source.

We ask potential applicants to refer to the Scheme-Specific Funding Guidelines below for further information relating to each funding opportunity.

If you require further information about any of the Schemes, please contact the Beat Cancer Project Officer via email at .
