Help every child live a happy, healthy life

Our Annual Research Grant Program

The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation grants around $1.5 million a year to supporting quality research within the universities, research institutes, health services and other organisations of South Australia.
Applications for basic science projects, clinical studies or community-based studies in any area of research relevant to children’s health, education and welfare are considered.
All EOI and Grant Applications are rigorously reviewed by the independent CRF Research Committee, and assessed on scientific merit and relevance to the health, education or welfare of children.
Full Grant Applications are reviewed by the Research Committee with additional input from independent referees, and a slight weighting in the final grant assessment process will be given to applications deemed by the Research Committee to have a particular emphasis on the CRF priorities.
There is an excellent success rate for CRF grants being awarded to quality grant applications.

How to Apply for a Grant

Applying for a CRF Research Grant is a two-step process: Expressions of Interest are submitted during February-April, with successful applicants invited to submit a full grant application during May-June.
