Stroke research is a core part of our mission to stop stroke, save lives and end suffering. By supporting research, we are fostering the current and next generation of leaders who will pave the way forward with ground-breaking discoveries to transform and enhance stroke care, treatment and rehabilitation in Australia.
Seed grants are being offered to conduct pilot or feasibility studies to inform larger nationally competitive grant submissions (eg. National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) project grants).
Proposals will be funded to improve access to and delivery of:
- Long term stroke recovery support (transition of care, follow-up interventions and long term support).
- High quality acute stroke care (especially aspects of care in the Quality Standards, access to stroke unit care, time critical treatment), i.e. translation into practice.
- Support for Carers.
Funding & Duration
Grants of up to $50,000 are available.
All Stroke Foundation grants are 12 month awards which take effect from the date the grant is paid out by the Stroke Foundation.
Early to mid-career researchers are eligible to apply for Seed Grants. Preference will be given to mid-career researchers.
Applicants are only eligible for one Seed Grant. Applicants who have previously received a Seed Grant from the Stroke Foundation are not eligible.
