Latest research funding updates

COVID-19 Update

At this extraordinary time, the immediate priority for every organisation, including Yorkshire Cancer Research, is the health and well-being of their staff and we hope all our funded research and service partners are safe and well. 

The latest updates regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are below and we will update this page when we have new information to share. 

Thank you for your patience as we all navigate through this exceptionally challenging time.

Current Awards

We understand that COVID-19 is likely to have a substantial impact on the Awards we fund. We have been in contact with all the host organisations and all our Award Holders to start to fully understand the impact on individual Awards and to put appropriate plans in place to mitigate the impact. 

Travel Awards

If your conference has been cancelled or rescheduled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, please let us know as soon as possible. We may be able to arrange for the Award to be extended, if new dates are available. We may cancel your current Award and ask you to submit a new application once it is clear what the new costs and dates for your conference will be as the details may have changed since the initial application was made. 

Our Funding Rounds

We understand the amount of hard work and effort that everyone puts into making an application to the charity and in helping us deliver against our strategic objective to reduce the number of cancer deaths in Yorkshire by 2000 each year. 

As such we are glad to say, following a substantial delay, that applicants to the 2019 Funding Round have now been informed of the outcome of their applications. We will soon be able to release information on the newly funded Awards!  

We are also delighted to announce that we are now able to open our next funding round – please click here to find out more.
