Research grants

The Brain Tumour Charity funding opportunities are based on the key aims of our research strategy 'A Cure Can't Wait' as we aim to double survival and halve the harm caused by brain tumours.

We fund research into a wide variety of brain tumour types that affect both adults and children. We issue open calls for applications for project grants, programme grants, clinical research training fellowships and clinical trials.

The COVID-19 crisis is having an impact across a broad range of our activities, most notably our ability to fundraise for future grant calls. As a results all grant calls are under review. Future grant call dates will be announced as soon as possible.

As the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally, we’re committed to helping the research community recover once the current crisis is over. The health and well-being of our brain tumour community, including research staff, remains our priority. If you would like to receive a notification of future funding opportunities as they become available, please contact us at or on 01252 418190.
