Our Grants

The PRF is pleased to announce the 2018 Grants Program will feature Seeding and Project Grants. Discover our grants below:


Seeding Grants are for new researchers working on new or established clinical research projects. The purpose of these grants is to help new researchers begin a research career. Applications for 2018 are now closed.


Project Grants are for new or experienced researchers working on new or established physiotherapy research projects. They have replaced the former Tagged Grant scheme. Their purpose is to support research that contributes to the science and practice of physiotherapy. Applications are considered on the basis of scientific merit and the likelihood of the project meeting its objectives, including preparation of a publishable manuscript, within the stated timeframes. There are many research approaches that would be relevant to the grants scheme, such as laboratory studies, clinical research, systematic reviews, economic analyses, implementation research and qualitative research. However, all applications must aim to provide new knowledge relevant to the science and practice of physiotherapy. There are two grants of $16,000 each available in 2018. Grant applications are now open.

Beryl Haynes Memorial Fund Grant will be offered for clinical research conducted in Tasmania. The research can relate to any area of physiotherapy practice and the grant will be awarded on the basis of scientific merit and the relevance of the research. Projects that can show a benefit to the Tasmanian community will be given precedence. There will be one grant of $10,000 offered in 2018. Grant applications are now open.
