What we do


BCFNZ Fellowship Programme

We regret that fellowships will NOT be offered in the 2023-24 financial year.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ Fellowships provide the opportunity for a scientist or clinician to further develop their career, and at the same time to advance BCFNZ’s mission: Pushing for new frontiers in early detection, treatment and support in support of our long term vision of “Zero deaths from breast cancer”.

The Ronald Kay Science Fellowship is named for the late Dr Ronald Kay, who was a breast surgeon, patron and founding trustee of BCFNZ, long-time chair of BCFNZ’s medical advisory committee, founder member of the Auckland Breast Cancer Study Group, Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

The Belinda Scott Clinical Fellowship is named for the late Dr Belinda Scott, retired breast surgeon, co-founder of BCFNZ, former BCFNZ medical advisory committee chair, and pioneer of sentinel node biopsy in New Zealand.
