Heart Foundation Funding Schemes

Funding Scheme Description
Vanguard Grants Provide funding to test the feasibility of innovative concepts in public health and/or health services (including clinical services delivery) that may lead to larger, more rigorous testing in the future. Please note that this scheme is not intended to fund basic clinical or biomedical research.
Funding is up to $75,000 for one year.
Collaboration and Exchange Awards In addition to the funding available to support research professionals to undertake their work, the Collaboration and Exchange Awards are offered to Heart Foundation-funded scholars and postdoctoral fellows to facilitate capacity building through collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Up to $5,000 will be available to support activities for up to 6 months, to visit research facilities in Australia or overseas.
Future Leader Fellowships To support PhD graduates who are 3-10 years post-PhD to develop research independence from an early stage in any area of cardiovascular research. Future Leader Fellowships are non-renewable, include salary and project funding and are tenable for 4 years. Two funding levels are offered:
Level 1: 3 to less than 7 postdoctoral. $90,000 stipend pro rata*, plus $40,000 project support per annum
Level 2: 7 to less than 10 years postdoctoral. $110,000 stipend pro rata*, plus $50,000 project support per annum.
*For Future Leader Fellowships commencing in 2015.

*For Australian Indigenous Scholarships commencing in 2015.
Health Professional Scholarships To support health professionals to undertake a PhD in an area of cardiovascular research and develop the skills required to translate and implement research evidence into practice. The award provides the opportunity for applicants to return to the main PhD stream after a number of non-academic years. The Scholarships are funded for up to 3 years, subject to annual review, with a stipend of$40,000 pro rata per annum*.
*For Health Professional Scholarships commencing in 2015.
Partnership Engagement Grants To provide a mechanism by which research can approach the Heart Foundation Research Program with proposals for the Heart Foundation to contribute to partnership grant applications to other funding agencies. Although this scheme is predominantly aimed at NHMRC Partnership Projects and ARC Linkage Projects, other partnership grant types will also be considered.
Applicants may request a financial contribution, an in-kind contribution, or a combination of both. If requesting a financial contribution, the amount requested may be up to $150,000 per year.
