The Defence Health Foundation invites Expressions of Interest from researchers for medical research grants available from the beginning of 2018.
The objective of the research must be to benefit the health and wellbeing of serving or ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Forces or their immediate families.
Our 2017 research priorities are for medical research that:
- Evaluates healthcare programs that deliver services to contemporary serving ADF members, serving families, ex-serving and their families
- Evaluates physical and mental health issues and behaviours of serving and ex-serving members and the impact on the lives of their families and family dynamics
- Focuses on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation or intervention.
Grants on offer range from $25,000 to $100,000 p.a. over 1 to 3 years.
Full details can be found on our website www.
the Research Grant Guidelines and the Expression of
Interest application form.
Expressions of Interest must be submitted by Friday 28 April 2017. Successful applicants from this first stage will be invited to submit a full grant application by 7 July 2017. Grant recipients will be advised in November.
