Children's Cancer & Leukaemia Group (CCLG) Little Princess Trust project grant

Little Princess Trust (LPT) Project Grants support research into cancers affecting children and young people. Funded projects will align with the objectives set out in LPT’s research strategy; funded projects will:

  • Improve survival, treatment or patient care
  • Provide patients with kinder, less toxic treatments
  • Assist in transferring research progress from the lab to a clinical setting
  • Broaden and deepen knowledge of children and young people’s cancers.

The focus should be on improving outcomes for children and young people.


Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund project grant

The Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund was established in 1984 under the Will of the late James Sainsbury CBE.  It awards grants for research on aspects of leukaemia and for relevant studies on related haematological malignancies. Grants are awarded for first class research on innovative proposals, particularly those close to the care of leukaemia patients or the prevention of leukaemia or related diseases.  Project grants are awarded twice yearly, and Intermediate, and Junior Fellowships of 3 – 4 years are awarded annually.  The Fund also considers support for capital projects that will have direct benefit to leukaemia patient care.

 Royal Society

Royal Society Research Grant

A scheme for scientists in the UK who are at an early stage in their career or returning from a career break and want to purchase specialised equipment and consumables. The scheme provides ‘seed corn’ funding for new projects of timeliness and promise. The objective of the scheme is to increase the availability of specialised equipment and essential consumable materials, and to support essential field research.

The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas.

British Society for Haematology Early-Stage Research Start-Up Grant

Early Stage Research (ESR) grants provide support to cover consumable expenses at the beginning of a research project. Applications are particularly welcomed from younger members of the Society to give them the opportunity to follow a research plan leading to a full grant application.

The British Society for Haematology (BSH) has been bringing haematology professionals together since 1960 to transform the care our members provide to patients. With over 1700 members worldwide, we are the largest UK haematology organisation and the only society to cover all aspects of the specialty.
