Applicants are encouraged to focus on Healthway’s high priority areas of tobacco smoking control, reducing harm from alcohol, good nutrition promotion, physical activity promotion (including reducing sedentary behaviour), mental health promotion and Aboriginal health.

Health Promotion Research Starter Grants

Applications for the 2015 round are now open and will close on Friday 27th February 2015 at 5pm.

Healthway provides funding for innovative research projects that will assist in the prevention of ill health and promotion of health in Western Australia. Starter grants encourage and support new researchers to apply for funding for health promotion research and provide an opportunity for more experienced researchers to undertake some piloting, exploratory or formative work on new research ideas. Starter grants may then lead to the development of larger studies to expand upon the results. Applicants must demonstrate that the research is achievable and realistic within the timeframe and budget.

Applicants are encouraged to focus on Healthway’s high priority areas of tobacco smoking control, reducing harm from alcohol, good nutrition promotion, physical activity promotion (including reducing sedentary behaviour), mental health promotion and Aboriginal health.
