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: 31 January and 31 July. Online application submission opens 2 months prior to these deadlines.
