Research grants at SALHN

SALHN strives to continually improve our research capability which is done though engaging our partners across health, academia and industry. We have a variety of internal and external grant opportunities throughout the year. SALHN can also administer a range of grants on behalf of SALHN staff. The SALHN Enquiry Grant Round is launched in September each year.

SALHN Research Enquiry Grant Round


In collaboration with our Major Partners; Flinders Foundation and The Hospital Research Foundation, SALHN is pleased to announce the Enquiry Grant Round aimed at supporting the SALHN Research Direction and encouraging further research across our network.

Thanks to the generosity and support of both the Flinders Foundation and The Hospital Research Foundation, the total funding pool for 2022 is $1,000,000 which will provide funding for research studies to be conducted by SALHN staff members.
