Since 1976, the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation has provided grants to support research into conditions that may affect the health, education and welfare of children in South Australia and the Northern Territory; and is pleased to continue to do so.
Over the past number of years, application numbers have steadily increased and, whilst the Foundation has increased the amount of funding allocated to just over $1M annually, it is not possible to fund all of the many deserving projects.
It is recognised that a lot of time and effort is expended on the grants application process, so the Foundation is pleased to announce a change to the application process for the 2012 grants round.
Researchers seeking funding for 2012 will be invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). This will be a two page summary of the application, which will then be reviewed by the Research Committee. Invitations will be extended to selected researchers to submit full applications.
The maximum funding per grant will be $75,000, which may be taken over 1 or 2 years. The timing of the grants round will not significantly be altered and will be advertised in January 2011. EOI applications will close on 25 March and notification regarding the final outcomes will be announced in November 2011.
Application forms and details will be available on the Foundation website from 15 January 2011.
