EFECF is a public benevolent institution that seeks to benefit the wider Australian disability sector as a whole, with an emphasis on people with an intellectual disability. EFECF provides grants to researchers and postgraduate students undertaking research into significant issues for the Australian disability sector.


Research Grants
EFECF will give preference to research projects that address areas where there is little or no research, especially around issues that have a significant impact on the ability of people with a disability (particularly an intellectual disability) to lead an ordinary life. EFECF is also interested in the translation of research findings into implications for policy and practice in a form that is useful and accessible to practitioners, service providers and policy makers.

Funding
In 2013 EFECF will make one award of $40,000 to fund research into issues of key importance to the Australian disability sector, particularly issues relating to intellectual disability. Overheads or infrastructure costs will not be covered in an EFECF award.

Criteria
Preference will be given to researchers who formulate an appropriate dissemination strategy in their grant application form. Research projects will be assessed against the following three criteria:

  • Research impact (impact of research question and potential outcomes for people with a disability)

  • Research quality (excellence in project conception, methodology and leadership)

  • Productivity (justification of resources, likelihood of successful delivery, and dissemination strategy)


Submission

Please submit a hardcopy of finalised proposals to the Research Branch, accompanied by a completed and signed hardcopy of the University's Grant Application Coversheet.

The opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant (R01) funding mechanism.


Purpose of Grant

The purpose of this opportunity is to inform the scientific community of the pain research interests of the various Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to stimulate and foster a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational studies on pain as they relate to the missions of these ICs. New advances are needed in every area of pain research, from the micro perspective of molecular sciences to the macro perspective of behavioural and social sciences. Although great strides have been made in some areas, such as the identification of neural pathways of pain, the experience of pain and the challenge of treatment have remained uniquely individual and unsolved.

Australia-Harvard Fellowships are aimed at innovators who are normally based at Harvard and have a persuasive plan to collaborate with Australia's best science/technology researchers and educators. And similarly for Australian researchers to follow-up at Harvard.

The Fellowships are offered by Harvard Club of Australia Foundation which supports learned exchange between Harvard University and Australia. The Foundation seeks to attract applicants whose work will bring clear benefit to Australia as well as the University. We normally envisage a working visit of several months, during which we encourage Fellows to interact additionally with local educators and students. Some senior applicants favour a shorter visit, but one that enables them to take a primary role in a seminar or instructional course open to numbers of Australians who work in the applicant's specialised field. Another option is the opportunity to undertake longer studies, for example, of sabbatical duration.


Eligibility
Scientists, engineers and medical researchers and educators who:

  • are normally based at Harvard University or one of its closely affiliated institutions;
  • have links with scientific and technology research and/or education activities in Australia;
  • were awarded their Ph.D. before 2010 (or qualification of equal rigor);
  • alternatively, are Australia-based and seek funding to visit Harvard to follow up their collaborations with previously incoming Australia-Harvard Fellows

Most favored will be those applicants who can demonstrate strong potential for 'break-through' impacts resulting from their collaborations. Australia-based applicants become eligible when they can demonstrate significant value in working at Harvard with a former inbound Fellow, and have the intention to bring advances back to their Australian institutions.

Submission
Please forward one original signed hardcopy application to the Research Branch, plus one electronic copy, accompanied by a signed and completed hardcopy of the University's Grant Application Coversheet.

Hardcopies of applications may be sent to:
