The Victorian Cancer Agency makes funding available for translational research, and enablers of cancer research, through investment in programs, projects, people and infrastructure.

Our funding opportunities are designed to:

  • Provide support to a full range of cancer research 
  • Address areas of greatest need
  • Avoid duplication.

Any organisation that is, or will be, involved in cancer research in Victoria is eligible to apply for funding through the Victorian Cancer Agency. We only accept applications for funding at prescribed times. Researchers are encouraged to visit this site regularly for updates on current funding opportunities.

The Victorian Cancer Agency also collaborates with other organisations to provide funding opportunities in cancer research. For more information on past funding rounds run by partnering organisations see partner funding opportunities.
