New OpportunitiesThe Hospital Research Foundation “Your Choice” Patient Impact Grant Round 2019
The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) is proud to invite applications in its inaugural “Your Choice” Patient Impact Round.
This exciting initiative allows THRF supporters to play a key role in deciding how their donations will make an impact in the community.
This is the first time THRF has asked supporters to nominate the areas of medical research and patient care they would like THRF to fund with a specific grant round. Supporters have first been asked to select the two areas of healthcare that matter most to them. This result has informed the two areas for this grant round.
The following grants will be awarded, with funding commencing 1 July 2019 for a 12 month project:
- One grant of $200,000, in the field of Aged Care
- One grant of $200,000, in the field of Cancer Patient Support
All applications will undergo an initial assessment by a THRF internal technical committee. The panel will shortlist proposals in each of the two categories and will ensure that all shortlisted proposals are feasible and meet high technical and quality standards.
The shortlisted proposals will be communicated to THRF supporters who will then cast their final vote. The grant with the highest number of votes for each of the two areas of healthcare will be awarded.
Application submissions will close at 4 pm on 15 March, 2019. The Flinders internal closing date is 1 March 2019. For application advice and assistance, please contact Gareth Rees, Senior Research Officer (NHMRC, MRFF, & Health).
Shortlisted applicants may be required to present more information to the THRF internal committee.
