RESEARCH GRANTS from the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation are awarded following an application, evaluation and review process.

Each application is reviewed by our Research Committee, with additional input from independent referees, and assessed on scientific merit and relevance to the health, education or welfare of children. Extra weighting in the grant assessment process will be given to applications deemed by the Research Committee to have a particular emphasis on the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation priorities of

  • Improving child protection and its effect
  • Improving children’s mental health and the impact of developmental disorders
  • Reducing childhood obesity and its impact
  • Understanding the social determinants of childhood health and development


The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation dedicates around $1.5 million each year to supporting both quality and innovative research conduced within the Universities, Research Institutes, Health Services and Educational and Welfare organisations of South Australia.

During our 45 years of supporting research ideas and initiatives – and helping to grow careers along the way – we’ve built a highly-respected and trustworthy brand alongside a rigorous and robust grant assessment program that is underpinned by the National Health and Medical Research Council; Australia’s peak funding body for medical research.

If you’d like to pursue a research idea in any area of children’s health, education and welfare within the area of community-based studies, clinical studies and basic science, then we’d love to hear from you.
