What we do


Belinda Scott Fellowship Programme

BCFNZ Belinda Scott Fellowship Programme is a medical research grant awarded each year to fund innovative research by a New Zealand scientist or clinician. The grant funds the scientists or clinician to pursue research that improves breast cancer survival or detection, or gives survivors relief from the long-term effects of their treatment.

This year two breast cancer researchers – one at the top of her field and the other a promising newbie – have been awarded 2017 fellowships by the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. The fellowships are worth $80,000 each.


We are not currently accepting applications for the BCFNZ Belinda Scott Fellowship Programme. Information on the next round, and relevant application forms, will be posted here later in the year.
