Research Studentships

The Brain Tumour Research Studentship program has been developed to accelerate brain tumour research and encourage new, young researchers to join the field.

Important research studentships are made possible from the generous support of donors. Studentships provide funding for two summers ($10,000 over two years) to young researchers, helping them to start their careers in the important field of brain tumour research. Thank you.
