Asthma Australia’s National Asthma Research Program provides support for project grants.
Project grants are broken into four application types to ensure funding is spread across priority areas and in accordance with the Asthma Australia Strategic Research Framework.
The four application types are: project grants; early-mid career researcher (EMCR) grants; innovation grants; and, priority population grants.
Funding & Duration
In recent years, research grants have been funded for one or two years and ranged in value between $75,000 and $150,000 per annum.
Overall, only two applications will be accepted per institution or university faculty. For early-mid career researcher (EMCR) grants, only one application for each institution will be accepted.
All Chief Investigators (CI) who are EMCRs must at the time of application: be less than 10 years from the date of the letter advising them that their doctoral thesis was passed, unless career disruptions exist; not have been a named CI (or equivalent) on a funded Asthma Australia or NHMRC Project Grant and/or an ARC Discovery Grant; and, not have been a named CI (or equivalent) on a funded research grant from any other agency listed on the Australian Competitive Grants Register or an equivalent national or international competitive funding programme.
