The PRF is pleased to announce the 2017 Grants Program will feature two new categories, Project Grants and Travel bursaries, alongside our successful Seeding Grant scheme. 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 2017 are now closed.
Project Grants are for researchers working on new or established research projects. These will replace the former Tagged Grant scheme, and are open to Physiotherapy researchers of all levels of experience. There will be two grants of $17,000 each available. Applications for 2017 are now closed.
Beryl Haynes Memorial Fund Grant is 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 2017. Applications for 2017 are now closed.
Travel bursaries will be offered in 2017 for PRF recipients to attend the APA Conference in Sydney in October to present their research. Applications for 2017 are now closed.
