  • Stage 1 is submission of an Expression of Interest (EOI).
  • Stage 2 is an invited full application.

Research Training Scholarships and Research Fellowship applicants are required to submit a full application.

All applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines and application forms carefully when completing their applications.

All applicants must also focus on at least one of Healthway’s strategic priorities; increasing healthy eating, increasing physical activity, improving mental health, preventing harm from alcohol, creating a smoke-free WA and Aboriginal health.

Applications in other areas of health promotion will not be considered.
