Gold Coast Health Collaborative Research Grants Scheme

The Collaborative Research Grant Scheme is delivered by Gold Coast Health in collaboration with Gold Coast Hospital Foundation, Griffith University, Bond University and Southern Cross University.  The research grant scheme is a competitive grant program which provides support up to $100,000 for research projects of one to three years’ duration.

The aim of this grant scheme is to support innovative, collaborative and responsive health care research that optimises our system of health care.

The 2022 round of the grant scheme is now open for Expression of Interest (EOI). Submit your application by 20 June 2022.

>> Find guidelines here and document templates to support your Expression of interest, in the research sharefile folder

The scheme involves a two-step application process. Following review of the EOIs by members of a panel, applicants with a successful EOI submission will be invited to prepare a full application.
