Research grant applications now open

24 Jan 2019

Thanks to our wonderful supporters and fundraisers, we are now able to invite new research grant applications for 2019. We invite academic and hospital-based research staff in the North West to apply for  “pump priming” childhood cancer research grants. We are particularly interested to receive applications for projects on solid tumours.

The aim of our research grants are to provide preliminary funding that could lead to more substantial funding from national research grant organisations. Funding in this way makes us unique as a childhood cancer research charity, in that we get new ideas off the ground and give them a chance to make a difference.

The funding limit is £70,000 for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year upon receipt of a satisfactory progress report. The Friends of Rosie Independent Scientific Advisory Board will review all applications and make recommendations to our Board of Trustees on the most promising areas of research.

The grant application pack is available to download on our website homepage. Just scroll down to ‘Request for Research’ and click the ‘Download Grant Application Pack’ button. Please send the completed forms by email to by Friday 15th March 2019.

If you have any questions regarding the grant application process, please contact our communications manager, Helen Griffin, at or on 07887 932293.

We look forward to announcing our successful research application in April / May.
