Our Grants

We are committed to delivering future-focused research and evidence-based practice to assure the community that health care is: 

  • of the highest scientific merit and built on strong theoretical foundations 
  • respectful of consumers by including them in the co-design of research 
  • able to meet the anticipated needs of the community by collaborating with academic, government, not-for-profit and industry partners to deliver new technologies and innovations. 

To support our commitment, Gold Coast Health provides a range of funding initiatives. This assists eligible staff to engage in research and professional development activities, aimed to advance the delivery of optimal health care to the Gold Coast community.

Details of our funding opportunities are listed and we encourage eligible staff to apply. Whilst we would like to assist everyone, all applications are subject to review and not all will be successful.

Please check here periodically for details of open funding opportunities as they become available.
