ANZAHPE Research Grants
2020 Grant Round NOW OPEN
Application closing date: January 20, 2020
The ANZAHPE Grants for Educational Research were established in 1987 with the aim of encouraging and fostering research and development in the education of health professionals. The grants are a one-time offer of support, rather than a continuing fund, and are intended to encourage quality research into any issue associated with the education of any health professionals. It is hoped that these grants will allow the recipients to pursue educational research that is unlikely to be funded by other sources. ANZAHPE is particularly keen to support new and emerging educational researchers.
ANZAHPE grants are intended to encourage quality research into any issue associated with the education of health professionals.
In 2020, however, priority will be given to projects that can demonstrate a link to ANZAHPE’s strategic priorities, which are to:
1. Support research and scholarship in health professions education
The primary investigator must be an Australian or New Zealand resident and a financial member of ANZAHPE.
Research grants can be used to undertake a small project, to begin a project for which continuing support could then be sought from other sources or to progress an existing project through a defined activity such as, the development or validation of instruments, funding research assistance or equipment necessary to begin a project. Research grants can also be used to fund an entire piece of research.
The funded project should be completed within 12 months of receiving the awarded funding.
Recipients are required to acknowledge ANZAHPE in any publications resulting from their research grant. On completion of the project (that is, within 12 months of receipt of funding) a report from the recipient must be sent to the Honorary Secretary. The recipient must present the outcomes of the project at the ANZAHPE conference and /or submit for publication to Focus on Health Professional Education: A Multidisciplinary Journal. A synopsis of each successful grant will be published in the ANZAHPE e-Bulletin.
Applications must include:
1. A study proposal (2500 words maximum) including:
2. A two page curriculum vitae (for each person listed on the application), including contact details, outlining recent publications, or evidence of significant support to complete the project (for example, a research mentor).
In considering applications, particular attention will be paid to:
Amount of funding
Funding will be available for small-scale projects with budgets up to $5,000 as well as larger scale projects with budgets up to $15,000.
As per the guidelines for submitting research grant applications, a detailed outline of how the money will be spent is required.
Some grants could be for seeding to help begin a project for which continuing support could then be sought from other sources (including linked funding). Such grants could cover the development of instruments, or research assistance or equipment necessary to begin a project.
Research Grants will be offered in 2020 and applications are now open.
Application closing date: January 20, 2020. Applications accepted to midnight (ACST).
Research Grant recipients will be announced at the ANZAHPE Conference July 12-5, 2020, Melbourne, VIC
