Research grants

The College is committed to enabling the development of discipline-specific knowledge through support of members undertaking research.

The development of knowledge that informs clinical practice, health service delivery or paramedic education is critical to the development of the profession. Well-designed and executed research will provide the basis for evidence-based practice, particularly in areas where knowledge is lacking or incomplete.

Although universities and research centres have an obligation to provide appropriate supervision, statistical support and the infrastructure required to undertake research, the College recognises there are additional costs associated with research that may not be covered by universities and research centres. Such costs may be eligible for a College research grant.

There is one funding round per year. Applications are now open and will close Friday 24 May 2024. Access the Research Grant Guidelines here.
