Project and simulation/education grants

Each year, we fund a wide range of projects in the field of basic scientific research, clinical investigation or epidemiological research.

Many advances in healthcare in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore that are crucial to the safety and well-being of patients owe their origins to pioneering research undertaken by college fellows and trainees who were awarded college project grants.

These grants are the college's main avenue for the support of projects with studies being carried out in leading hospitals and universities in Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

Eligibility

  • Project grants and simulation/education grants support research by fellows of ANZCA. Chief investigator A (first named investigator) must be a fellow or registered trainee of the college.  However, if chief investigator A is a registered trainee, one of the other chief investigators must be a fellow of the college.
  • Grants are usually awarded for one year, however multi-year funding grants are available for a second year of additional funding only, with the second year capped at $A50,000. 
  • Higher degree scholarships are made within a project grant application.

Entitlements

The maximum amount available for a project grant is $A70,000 for year one and $A50,000 for year two. Therefore the maximum amount that can be applied for is $A120,000. 

Applicants requesting multi-year funding must attain a higher ranking, determined by the ANZCA Research Committee, to be considered for multi-year funding. If the committee deems a grant to be of fundable quality, but it does not meet the ranking threshold for multi-year grants, the application may be approved for one year of funding only, based on the availability of funding

Simulation/education Grants

Simulation and education research are high priorities for the college. To specifically encourage research in this area and because of the challenges in comparing clinical and laboratory research with research in education, the college established simulation/education Grant.

Applications should be made using the same form as those for project grants, indicating in the appropriate box that it is for a simulation/education grant.

Simulation/education grants will be considered as project grants, but the highest ranked fundable simulation/education grant will be designated the simulation/education grant for that year.

Research Scholarships

Eligibility

Scholarship grants are made within the project grant scheme and are awarded to fellows or registered trainees enrolled as senior degree students to support full-time or part-time research in a recognised university or research institute in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia or Singapore. They are available for one to two years, subject to category of award made and subject to satisfactory reports.

Entitlements

The stipend and allowances are similar to those provided by the NHMRC. Half-time research may be negotiated on a pro-rata basis upon application.

Apply

The closing date for project grant applications is 5pm AEDT April 1, 2021.

The application form and guidelines will be available December 1, 2020.
