Mental Health Research Grant – Expression of Interest for 2020

EOIs for Mental Health Research Grants NOW OPEN! Read the information below before filling out the online form. 

Australian Rotary Health enjoys the support of Rotary Clubs and Districts throughout Australia, which includes over 1,111 Rotary Clubs and 29,412 Rotarians. Australian Rotary Health has channelled more than $41.5 million into Australian research projects over its 37 year history.

Australian Rotary Health is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for its Mental Health Research Grants. Projects must focus on the mental health of young Australians (aged 0 – 25 years) and be conducted within Australia at a recognised university, hospital or research institute. Research grants are valued at up to $70,000 per annum + GST for 1, 2, or 3 years, and are available to Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, and New Zealand citizens.

Important Notes:

  • Principal Investigators holding a current Australian Rotary Health grant are not eligible to apply unless their grant finishes in 2019. Co-Investigators can have an active Australian Rotary Grant in progress.
  • The Principal Investigator may apply for only ONE grant as the Principal Investigator (they may be included as Co-Investigators on other applications)
  • The Principal Investigator MUST be a citizen or permanent resident of Australia or New Zealand. Co-Investigators can have any country of origin.
  • If invited to submit a full application, there are to be no changes allowed to the Principal Investigator. Please be aware of this as you submit your EOI.
  • Bullet points are acceptable
  • No budget information is required at this stage
