The Victorian Cancer Agency also collaborates with other organisations to provide funding opportunities in cancer research. For more information on past funding rounds run by partnering organisations see partner funding opportunities.
The Victorian Cancer Agency uses SmartyGrants to administer our grants. SmartyGrants is an online grant management system that provides easy-to-use online application forms, as well as report management for successful applicants.
The Snowdome Foundation was established in 2010 and is committed to raising funds to accelerate new treatments for Australian blood cancer patients to help them live longer, better lives.
The Snowdome Foundation is delighted to partner with the VCA to deliver this innovative research opportunity which will assist in ‘making hope real’ in the fight against blood cancers. This Fellowship was made possible due to the extraordinary passion from Eva and Les Erdi to recognise life is precious and their inspiration to improve people’s lives.
Clinical Research Fellowships are aimed at strengthening and supporting clinical cancer research and increasing the pool of clinician researchers working directly on clinical problems.
Co-funded with Eva and Les Erdi and the Snowdome Foundation, the aim of the new Eva and Les Erdi / Snowdome Foundation Fellowship for New Targets in Haematological Malignancies is to:
· provide the opportunity for a blood cancer clinician to develop and sustain a career in research; and
· encourage research with a focus on new biological targets in haematological malignancies such as epigenetic targets, potential biomarkers, pathway discovery and novel agents.

The translational research project scheme seeks to fund projects focussing on translational research in cancer. The Victorian Cancer Agency is calling for applications across the following areas:
The overriding rationale for funding will be the potential for translation into patient care.
Applications addressing areas of greatest clinical need will be looked at most favourably.

One of the priority areas for the Victorian Cancer Agency is building cancer research capacity and capability in Victoria through encouraging clinicians and academic researchers to undertake research projects in cancer. Victorian Cancer Agency Clinical Research Fellowships are intended to allow dedicated time for translational cancer research.
The aims of the Victorian Cancer Agency Clinical Research Fellowships are to:
Clinical Research Fellowships are aimed at strengthening and supporting clinical cancer research. The purpose is to increase the pool of clinician researchers working directly on clinical problems. These groups can strongly influence the translation of cancer research into practice, and build local capacity in translational cancer research.
The Victorian Cancer Agency Early Career Seed Grants are designed to support early career researchers undertaking high quality translational cancer research. The grants provide limited seed funding to encourage and retain talented individuals in the field of cancer research in Victoria.
The objectives of the Early Career Seed Grants are to:
The Richard Pratt Fellowships in Prostate Cancer Research are a joint initiative between the Victorian Cancer Agency and the Richard Pratt Fellowships in Prostate Cancer Research Foundation. They recognise the philanthropic efforts of Richard Pratt in supporting young people and cancer research.
The objectives of the Richard Pratt Fellowships in Prostate Cancer Research are to:
The 2013 Richard Pratt Fellowship in Prostate Cancer Research will fund an early career researcher conducting a project in prevention of prostate cancer.
Prevention is defined as identifying interventions which reduce cancer risk by reducing exposure to cancer risks and increasing protective factors. Interventions may target personal behaviours that affect cancer risk or may involve nutrition, chemoprevention, or vaccines.
