Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund – Project Grants

Project Grants


The Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund


28th February 2014


Not stated


Grants will be awarded for research on aspects of leukaemia and for relevant studies on related haematological malignancies. Requests for support for basic science programmes may be considered. Clinical trials will not be supported. Proposals which are closely related to the prevention, diagnosis, or therapy of leukaemia and related diseases are particularly encouraged.

Grants are usually awarded to give additional support to programmes already underway, the aim being to further strengthen activities which are already of high quality. It follows that the KKLF will accept proposals from groups which already have support from other agencies.

It is intended that the KKLF funding should not be the ‘core’ funding of any research group. Applicants should state clearly how their proposal relates to their core funding. Project grant applications submitted simultaneously to other funding bodies will not be accepted.


Up to 3 years


The trustees will consider proposals from both UK and non-UK based organisations where the work to be funded is based primarily within the UK.
