The next grant round will offer a range of opportunities for stroke research teams in Australia to test their ideas and tackle evidence and implementation gaps in stroke prevention, treatment and recovery. 

Stroke Foundation encourages researchers to involve people with lived experience to design, conduct and promote research.
Take our co-designed e-learning module on how to work effectively with people with lived experience.


Grants offered

1. Stroke Foundation Seed Grants

Four (4) Seed Grants are offered, up to $80,000 in total per 18-month grant, for early and early-mid career researchers for projects addressing (at least) one of our 2023 research priority areas:

  • Developing health services and pathways to improve early identification of stroke with a specific focus on underserved communities (examples include marginalised groups, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and socially isolated people). One (1) Seed Grant is allocated to this priority area in this grant round.
  • Translational and implementation research of evidence-based care pathways of stroke management. Projects must specifically assess how to improve adoption or implementation of evidence-based treatments/processes, that have been shown to be effective, within health or home settings.
  • Long-term community support beyond 6 months post-stroke (e.g. interventions to improve continuity of care, community health services, primary care, social isolation).
  • Long-term psychosocial recovery beyond 6 months post-stroke (i.e. interventions for recovery of cognition, communication, and emotional and social wellbeing).
