WCH Foundation Research Project Grants

Established in 1989, the WCH Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation governed by a Board of Directors and incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 1985.

The WCH Foundation is the official charity for the benefit of the Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH), a facility of WCHN. It works in partnership with the South Australian community to support the Hospital and achieve positive long-term outcomes for babies, children, young people and women's health. This includes supporting world class research via the WCH Foundation Research Project Grants by providing funding for research projects on an annual basis.

The maximum funding per grant is $100,000.

Funding arrangements developed for WCH Foundation Research Grants awarded in previous years (2018 and 2019) are to continue for 2020, please read carefully before applying for a grant.

Applications will be accepted from staff who are located at the WCH campus or WCHN site for 50% or more of their time and hold paid or other appointments at the WCHN, SA Pathology, SA Pharmacy, South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI - Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children theme) and the WCHN Core University Departments (Paediatrics or Obstetrics & Gynaecology).

The additional new category of "Other" enables SA researchers, active in various aspects of women’s and children’s health but who do not meet criteria outlined above, to apply for funding. This is provided that the scope of research remains primarily focussed on women and children and is a genuine collaboration with staff located at WCHN and includes patients of WCHN.

Please see the Application Form and Application Guidelines below for further details. The applicant must read the Appliction Guidelines before completing the Application Form.

Applications will close at: 4pm on Monday, 17 June 2019.
