The purpose of the Stroke Prevention Grant (SPG) is to generate an innovative and collaborative program of research demonstrating Australia’s capacity to address and solve a significant problem within the prevention of stroke. It is expected that this funding opportunity will create an outstanding program of work that is highly-esteemed, internationally competitive, and able to leverage significant further funding.
For this one-off funding opportunity, the Heart Foundation is seeking research grant applications to address the prevention of stroke.
This may include, but is not limited to:
- Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
- Vascular aspects of dementia
- Vascular biology of stroke
Funding & Duration
The Heart Foundation contribution for the Stroke Prevention Grant will be between $3-5 million in total, and it is anticipated that 1-2 programs will be funded.
The duration of funding will be for up to five years.
The award is open to all applicants who can demonstrate an ability to conduct a program of research in stroke prevention. Ideally applicants will be senior, experienced and have a significant track record in national and/or international collaborations and an ability to attract further funding for the program.
