Project Grants are available for all researchers who want to work to accelerate progress in the field of cerebral palsy research. Applicants should be researchers who wish to build their reputation in the field of cerebral palsy, deepening their knowledge and experience. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to nominate junior researchers as chief investigators in their applications to foster upcoming researchers in the field of cerebral palsy research.
The aim of our Project Grant funding scheme is to support scientific excellence and innovative research into cerebral palsy.
Grants are awarded for projects that must be completed within 5 years and the maximum amount that can be requested is AU$300,000. The grant may be used to cover staff salary, research expenses and essential equipment.
The Research Foundation of Cerebral Palsy Alliance will only fund direct costs related to the objective of the award. Grant awards must not be used for indirect costs including infrastructure, overheads or administration costs that are expected to be provided by the Administering Institution as standard support for researchers.
