Hear about CRF's future funding opportunities as they are announced.

CRF Annual Research Grants

The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation grants around $1.5 million a year to supporting quality research within the universities, research institutes, health services and other organisations of South Australia.
Applications for basic science projects, clinical studies or community-based studies in any area of research relevant to children’s health, education and welfare are considered.

All EOI and Grant Applications are rigorously reviewed by the independent CRF Research Committee, and assessed on scientific merit and relevance to the health, education or welfare of children.

Full Grant Applications are reviewed by the Research Committee with additional input from independent referees, and a slight weighting in the final grant assessment process will be given to applications deemed by the Research Committee to have a particular emphasis on the CRF priorities.

There is an excellent success rate for CRF grants being awarded to quality grant applications.

CRF Enabling Grants (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 the Independent CRF 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.

CRF Fellowship Program

The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation Fellowship Program Supports Mid-Career Researchers To Pursue Ground-Breaking Advances In Childhood Health, Welfare Or Education, And To Build Research Capability In South Australia.

This new initiative by the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation (CRF) will invest close to $1M into the prevention and management of childhood disability and disease, in South Australia.

Designed for mid-career researchers, the program also addresses improving quality of life for young people and adults resulting from childhood disability and disease.
