The Foundation is pleased to advise that applications for our Clinical Fellowship and Innovation Grants are now open with details for both available on our website.

A Norman Beischer Research Fellowship provides an opportunity for an outstanding clinician or scientific researcher to be recognised with an esteemed and competitive fellowship.  The Fellowship awards $600,000 over a three-year period for the recipient. 

The Fellowships are aimed at those who have completed a PhD and are early-to-mid-career researchers.  Applicants should have obtained their PhD less than ten years prior to the submission of the application, and the researchers must be working in areas of interest to the Foundation. Applications for the Fellowship close at 12 noon Thursday 02 September 2021.

Innovation Grants provide seed funding to support highly innovative research projects, which show potential toward a major benefit – or for major grant applications to NHMRC and other funders in the future. The applicant will define their objectives and test hypotheses in any area of obstetric, gynaecological or infant conditions. Innovation Grants are for 1-year research projects for amounts up to $60,000.  Applications for these Innovation Grants close at 12 noon Thursday 02 September 2021.

The Guidelines and the Application forms are available in the Fellowships and Grants pages on our website.
