Research grants open for applications

Six grants are available through the Stroke Foundation’s 2021 Research Grant Program, with applications open from 8 July 2020.

These include two new, targeted research grants offered to researchers of any career stage, through the generous establishment of Stroke Foundation’s Endowment Memorial Funds:

  • A call for further investment to advance knowledge in the field of young adult stroke through the second grant to be offered by the Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke.
  • Stroke Foundation’s recently established Nancy and Vic Allen Stroke Prevention Memorial Fund offers a 2-year grant to further primary and/or secondary stroke prevention and target specifically on the areas of stroke education, research and public awareness, including consideration of evidence-based integrative health care.

Additionally, four Early Career Researcher Seed Grants are offered to continue to build capacity and support Australia’s emerging researchers in the early stages of their career. These grants focus on feasibility and implementation studies.

Across all the grants offered, the Stroke Foundation welcomes applications focusing on telehealth models of care.

Stroke Foundation continues to consider diversity of research grant funding and opportunities to support Australia’s leading and emerging champions of stroke research. Stroke Foundation has established a Stroke Research and Innovation Future Fund to increase stroke research capacity, generate new knowledge and support translational research to improve real world practice.

Applications close on Friday 4 September 2020 (5pm AEST), with outcomes to be be advised mid-December 2020.
