Grants starting at $30,000 per year to Canada, USA, and International PhDs, MDs, and health care professionals with at least a Master's degree to engage in breast cancer research in British Columbia. Applicants who will reside in or return to British Columbia will receive priority. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will receive preference for equally weighted applications between Canadian and International candidates.

This opportunity is designed to foster independent breast cancer research in the Province and help qualified applicants begin their careers as independent, social, clinical or basic science investigators in breast cancer research.

The primary purpose of the Foundation in funding scientific research is to advance its mission of A Future Without Breast Cancer. The Foundation does not fund projects whose primary purpose is the development or promotion of commercial interests.
