The Scottish Cancer Foundation, our parent charity, is currently inviting nominations for their 2015 prize, which will be awarded to the person who, in the opinion of the Scottish Cancer Foundation Board, has made the most significant contribution to reducing the burden of cancer in Scotland.
Applicants may be nominated or be self nominated. The applicant need not be a health professional but must be living and working in Scotland at the time of the award. The nature of their contribution is not specified and the prize is open to anyone whose work has had a significant impact on cancer in Scotland, although evidence of wider impact would be welcomed.
The Prize, amounting to up to £10,000, is awarded yearly at a fundraising subscription award ceremony and dinner. It is supported by the Grant Simpson Trust. The Prize will be accompanied by The “Evans/Forrest” Medal in recognition of the founders of the Scottish Cancer Foundation.
Further information on the format of nominations and nomination forms are available from the Scottish Cancer Foundation.
