Current ​Grant Funding Opportunities (HNELHD)


The HNE Research Office is delighted to announce the opening of the below programs as follows;

  • HNE Health Clinical and Health Services Research Fellowship Scheme – Round 4
  • HNE Health Improvement Grant Program – 2020

Staff interested in undertaking research or implementing improvement initiatives are encouraged to apply for one of five HNE Clinical or Health Service Research Fellowships or for improvement grant funding. Both opportunities are part of the annual HNE Research Office Program.


The Fellowships aim to promote excellence in health and medical research by encouraging collaboration between HNE researchers, clinicians and managers, and academic research partners. Successful applicants will undertake research that leads to evidence-based improvement in patient outcomes, and to the delivery of the best and most efficient healthcare for our community. The Partnerships Innovation and Research Unit and their partners have identified a total pool of approximately $1.5MIL to support up to five research fellowships. Applications are now CLOSED and we are undertaking our internal review to determine the successful applicants.
