Research Studentships

The 2015 round of applications is now closed. Watch this page for the awardees later in 2015.

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.
