The Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS) is Cancer Australia's innovative annual national research project grants funding scheme which brings together government and other funders to collaboratively fund cancer research in identified priority areas in Australia. PdCCRS project grant applications must directly relate to a research priority area specified by Cancer Australia and/or its Funding Partners. Experienced investigators as well as Young Investigators with less than 7 years post-PhD or post-MBBS are eligible to apply.
Applications will only be accepted from NHMRC approved Administering Institutions. A list of NHMRC approved Administering Institutions is available at:
Applications must satisfy all the requirements set out in the NHMRC Funding Rules 2018 and the additional requirements set out in the Project Grant scheme-specific funding rules v1.1. Applications must also satisfy all the requirements set out in the relevant 2018 PdCCRS Rules for Applicants.
Applicants must submit a project grant application to NHMRC through RGMS in addition to submission of a completed PdCCRS Questions form to Cancer Australia.
The proposed research must directly align with at least one research priority area specified by Cancer Australia or its Funding Partners.
Applicants applying for Young Investigator Project Grants must be: less than 3 years post-PhD or post-MBBS for Category B grants; more than 3 years but less than 7 years post-PhD or post-MBBS for Category C grants; and must be less than 7 years post-PhD or post-MBBS for Category D grants.
Applicants named as Chief Invetigator A can only submit a maximum of two applications to the 2018 round of the PdCCRS. Applications to the PdCCRS will not contribute to the revised NHMRC limit of two grant applications per Chief Investigator provided that the NHMRC application indicates it is requesting funding only from Cancer Australia and its Funding Partners.
