About Stroke Foundation's Research Grants
Stroke research is a core part of our mission to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery. By supporting research, we are fostering the current and next generation of leaders who will pave the way forward to the next innovation in stroke prevention, treatment and care.
Stroke Foundation’s Research Program funds annual research grants to promote stroke research capacity and generate new stroke knowledge. Since 2008, the Stroke Foundation has awarded almost $4.9 million in research grants to more than 200 researchers.
The Program is overseen by the Stroke Foundation Research Advisory Committee of the Board chaired by a special interest research member of the Stroke Foundation Board of Directors. The Committee includes experienced researchers from across Australia who volunteer their time to drive improvements in stroke understanding. All applications are reviewed and scored by independent and external reviewers. Funding is awarded to the highest ranking applications in accordance with the funding pool available.
