Cancer Council SA Beat Cancer Project: Travel Grants

The Beat Cancer Project is funded by Cancer Council SA and the SA Government (through SA Health) and administered by the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

The aim of the Beat Cancer Project Travel Grants is to offset the costs of travel and accommodation for early-career South Australian Cancer Researchers (PhD and Masters research students, and other early-career researchers, no more than 5 years post-doctoral) who have been invited to present their work at a national or international scientific meeting, or who can show that attendance at such meetings would have a direct positive impact on their career.

The scheme is also available to early-career researchers to fund travel costs to undertake short-term study/exchange at a national or international location.


The maximum amount of travel funding provided will be $10,000 (AUD) for support to undertake short term national or international study programs or exchanges, and up to $2,500 (AUD) may be provided for conference-only related travel.

Grant payments will be made on receipt of an invoice from administering institutions. Unexpended money must be returned.


Eligible applications may come from across the research spectrum, including biomedical, clinical, health-services and population-health research. Applicants should be PhD/Masters Research students, or other early-career researchers who are no more than 5 years post-doctoral.

Recipients of the last Beat Cancer Project Travel Grant funding round (2018) are not eligible to apply in the current (2019) round.

The travel must be undertaken for the stated purpose and completed within 12 months from the date of award.
