About The Prize

The Scottish Cancer Foundation awards an annual prize 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, up to £10,000, is awarded annually at the Scottish Cancer Conference, and is supported by the Grant Simpson Trust. It is accompanied by the Evans Forrest Medal, named in recognition of the founders of the Scottish Cancer Foundation.
