Tobacco Industry Funding

Tobacco use is the world’s greatest preventable cause of cancer, therefore we consider working with, supporting or accepting support from the tobacco industry to be incompatible with Worldwide Cancer Research’s charitable objectives.

We will not accept applications from anyone who is applying for, or has received, any funding or fees from the tobacco industry (or bodies substantially funded by the tobacco industry) within the last 10 years. If a Worldwide Cancer Research grant holder accepts funding from the tobacco industry (or bodies substantially funded by the tobacco industry) we will terminate their Worldwide Cancer Research funding.
