'Enabling Grants' Program (co-funding)

The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation ‘Enabling Grant’ program exists to support South Australian researchers seeking co-funding support for NHMRC Partnership and ARC Linkage grant applications.
Applications received prior to 31 July each year will be assessed by CRF’s Independent Research Committee, with outcomes advised to applicants by the end of September.

CRF will consider providing funding of up to $30,000 p.a. for the initial funding period for a successful NHMRC/ARC grant, to a maximum of 4 years ($120K).

The number of CRF Enabling Grants awarded will be strictly limited and at the sole discretion of the CRF Board.

Successful applicants will be provided with a “Letter of Intent” for inclusion in their NHMRC/ARC grant application.


Applications must be:
a. of broad benefit to children in the areas of health, education or welfare,
b. relevant and of sufficient merit to meet CRF’s objectives, and
c. clear in identifying how the project enhances the lives of children.

Any NHMRC/ARC research proposal relevant to the health, education and/or welfare of children will be considered

How to Apply for a CRF Enabling Grant

Researchers are requested to direct initial requests for information to the Research Office within the Administering Organisation and liaise with the Research Office before submitting their application.

Lodgment confirmation will be sent via email from Submittable to the Submitter’s email address.

Requests for co-funding may be submitted to CRF at any time, using the online submission platform ‘Submittable’.
