In partnership with the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency, Cancer Council Victoria is offering up to $1.5 million to build capacity in cancer survivorship and supportive care clinical trials to improve equity of access in Victoria.

Our Cancer Trials Management Scheme (CTMS) competitive grant round will fund up to three projects, up to a value of $500,000 per project, for a maximum of three years. Funding will be offered to projects that address an unmet need and build capacity to conduct and recruit to clinical trials in cancer survivorship and/or supportive care.

To be eligible for funding, applicants must work in the cancer control sector, with an interest and experience in supportive care, survivorship or clinical trials, or be collaborating with an individual or team with experience in these areas. Applications are now open and will be received and reviewed across two stages and will close on Thursday 15 July 2021.

Eligibility criteria and application information can be found on our website.

Cancer Council Victoria and the Victorian Cancer Agency are committed to improving participation and reducing inequities in access to cancer clinical trials in Victoria. By investing in clinical trials, we’re fostering innovation in cancer to save lives and ensure equitable access to clinical trials for all Victorians.
