LCNUK Small Grants Scheme

The LCNUK Small Research/Evaluation Grants Scheme is open to applications for 2024.

Exclusive to LCNUK full members based in the UK, funding is available for one - two small projects up to a total value of £5,000 per application.

Projects should generate research, evaluation or audit data that inform the practice of LCNUK members.

Applicants should demonstrate that their project meets some or all of the following criteria.

  • The ability to inform practice
  • The potential to lead to future research/evaluation that could be funded through an external funding stream e.g. a pilot study that could form the basis of a larger study
  • The ability develop research/evaluation capacity of LCNUK applicant member
  • The potential to develop an ongoing academic partnership

The Research must be of good scientific quality and rigour; and be based around the diagnosis and/or management of people with lung cancer and/or service provision for people with lung cancer.

Projects are expected to be completed within 18 months of the funding announcement and funds expended within 2 years of the announcement.  Surplus funds not expended within 2 years will be retained by LCNUK and used for charitable purposes.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 31st December 2024.
