Conquer Cancer Foundation: International Innovation Grant to Provide Funding in LMICs

Deadline: 31 July 2017

The Conquer Cancer Foundation (CCF) is currently seeking proposals for its International Innovation Grant to provide research funding in support of novel and innovative projects that can have a significant impact on cancer control in low- and middle-income countries (LMCs).

The International Innovation Grant is intended to support proposals that have the potential to reduce the cancer burden in local communities, while also being potentially transferable to other low- or middle-income settings.

Grant Information

  • The International Innovation Grant is a one-year research grant of up to $20,000 that is awarded and paid directly to a nonprofit organization or governmental agency (“Grantee Organization”) in a low-income or middle-income country.
  • The number of International Innovation Grants in each funding cycle is not predetermined by the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
