One of the biggest challenges with undertaking research is funding the actual work itself.
It's not sexy, it's not particularly tangible, but it is vital to improving the lives of cancer survivors in the future.
The NCCS Fellowship Fund has been developed as a way of enabling philanthropic-minded individuals, families and businesses from across Australia to come together and fund the bright minds who are pioneering cancer survivorship research.
With your commitment, young researchers can gain greater insight to address the physical, emotional, and practical challenges faced by survivors of cancers. Our clinical team develop their projects around three specific research goals that align with gaps in cancer survivorship knowledge. The outcomes from our research underpins provision of best practice survivorship care, both nationally and globally, as well as influence policy and practice in care of cancer survivors.
The NCCS is looking for Australian individuals, families and businesses to partner with us to help fund the crucial cancer survivorship research positions that will move us forward over the next few years. Contributions to our Fellowship Fund will support a Masters Scholar, a PhD Scholar and a Post-Doctoral Fellow. On average, both a Masters and PhD Scholar will spend three years completing their studies. To correlate with this, and to ensure some stability and continuity to their research, the NCCS intends to engage a Post-Doctoral Fellow for an initial period of three years also.
We are looking to individuals, families and businesses who are willing to invest $1,000 or more annually, for three years.
By directly supporting just one researcher through our Fellowship Fund, you can make a difference in the lives of thousands of people.
