WA Research Grants Application Information


New Investigator Grants

The aim of these grants is to attract new researchers to the asthma field and to give them a "step-up" into the competitive national grant funding system.

A New Investigator Grant allows new researchers to collect the preliminary data required to apply for ongoing funding by other bodies (e.g. NH&MRC).

New investigators are defined as those not having previously been named as a Chief Investigator on national competitive grants.New Investigator grants of no more than $30,000 (plus GST) are preferred.

Project Research Grants

These are traditional project grants, aimed primarily at established investigators. Project Research grants of no more than $40,000 (pus GST) are preferred.

The Fiona Staniforth Scholarship Award

Researchers who currently hold or have been approved for a full PhD Scholarship from another body, are eligible to apply for a Scholarship Top-Up from the Foundation to assist in their studies. Their PhD should apply to full time research in an area relevant to people with asthma. Assistance of up to $7,500 p.a. is available for the life of the PhD, to a maximum of three years.

Vi Watson Vacation Scholarships

Vi Watson Vacation Scholarships are open to all WA-based university students undertaking research projects relevant to asthma. Funding of $200 per week over 10 weeks will provide students with the financial support required to continue their research over the summer break.
