Apply for research funding

We provide funding for project grants and PhD studentships across the spectrum of sarcoma research.

As the national charity for all types of sarcoma, Sarcoma UK is committed to funding world-class science to understand sarcoma better, improve treatments and make a difference to the lives of sarcoma patients. Since 2009, we have funded over £6.5 million of research to a range of high-quality institutions and projects across the UK. Since the launch of our studentship programme in 2016 we have proudly supported seventeen PhD students in laboratories across the UK. Read more about the projects we’ve funded.

Our strategic approach to research is flexible and broad, with an aim of supporting the highest quality science which will have an impact for people affected by sarcoma. We support a wide range of sarcoma research and are flexible in being able to offer funding for a variety of laboratory, clinical and studentship projects via our funding calls.

Sarcoma UK warmly welcomes applicants from all backgrounds; from centres across the UK, as well as from research groups outside the sarcoma research space.
