Apply for a scheme

Yorkshire is big and beautiful and while we have much to celebrate, sadly the lives of too many people in our region are cut short by cancer. Yorkshire Cancer Research is dedicated to changing this through funding impactful research and services.

We are a ‘research-led’ charity focused on delivering solutions and real benefits to the people of Yorkshire.

We have a range of funding opportunities that researchers can apply for to help people in Yorkshire avoid cancer, get the earliest possible diagnosis and receive better treatments.
