Supporting innovative cancer research projects is one of the core tasks of the two partner organisations - the Swiss Cancer League and the Swiss Cancer Research foundation. This site - Grants Application Portal (GAP) - is shared by these partner organisations for the interaction with their grant applicants and reviewers to enable proper recording, submission and administration throughout the entire application process.
There are two deadlines set for submitting applications for cancer research funding and bursaries: 1 February and 1 August. Online application submission opens 2 months prior to these deadlines (i.e. 1 December and 1 June).
If you wish to apply for a cancer research grant, bursary, funding for a scientific conference or the Robert Wenner Award, please refer to the information sheets on our website before using this site for the first time.
