We’ll evaluate your application based on five priority areas:  

  1. Support men over 45 in the UK to understand their risk of prostate cancer and provide them with the information and tools to navigate it. 
  2. Facilitate equal care everywhere - regardless of ethnicity, location or income. 
  3. Transform testing for prostate cancer, to give every man the best chance of finding the disease early enough for a cure. 
  4. Research powerful, precise treatments to save and extend men's lives. 
  5. Provide personalised support for men at every stage. 

Organisational bursary

Organisations can apply for bursaries of up to £5,000 to provide prostate cancer and prostate disease-focused education based in the UK - such as training events, study days, workshops or similar.  

The organisational bursary application is on hold until the next financial year. You can apply now for organisational bursaries for the following financial year. All applications will be reviewed and processed once the new financial year starts. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding.
