Remit & Eligibility
We want to see novel, game-changing research!
As such, there are no financial restrictions as to what you can request – you should simply apply for what you need. However, please note that value for money will be a consideration in making final funding decisions, and so we would advise applicants to ensure that the amount they are requesting is a realistic reflection of what is needed.
We would expect projects to be between 1 to 5 years in duration; however again you should apply for however long you need. Projects that are shorter or longer than 1-5 years are still eligible; although, you should discuss this further with the Research Team at Prostate Cancer UK before applying.
This scheme will fund both fundamental and clinical research (and all stages in between); however, research at all stages will be expected to have a focus on eventual benefit to men. Applicants will be expected to set out a logical and realistic path of work that will need to happen at the end of the award in order to deliver that benefit to men.
We will also consider applications that bring innovative ideas from other cancer types and other diseases to be tested or translated for prostate cancer and we encourage applicants to build teams that include experts from other disciplines and other countries where that will improve the project.
Guidance notes are subject to change from last years round but please do refer to those as an indication of what to expect whilst we finalise the guidance notes for the 2020-21 round.
