Grants are available to provide financial support (up to 8 weeks support at £175 per week) for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience by carrying out a cancer related research project over the summer vacation. The purpose of the award is to encourage students to consider a career/research associated with cancer.

Student Bursaries will only be awarded to students who have yet to complete their degree i.e. those who will still be undergraduates during the summer vacation when the bursary project is undertaken. Please read details below about our award eligibility.

LILAC Ladies Student Bursary

Every year, one student bursary is supported by Big C Fundraising Group – LILAC Ladies. Since 1995 the LILAC Ladies have been dedicated supporters of Big C and its work and they are particularly keen to see some their funds raised applied to Big C student bursaries.

Their support does not change the basis on which this award is made but their Committee members would like to meet with the bursary student after the project has finished, so they can speak to you in person about why you applied for the bursary, what you did during your studentship and how you think you have gained from the experience.

Find out how Big C can support you and your family if you’ve been affected by cancer.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
