2021 Dementia Grants Program - OPENING SOON

Research needs bright and talented scientists to focus on the growing challenge dementia poses to current and future generations of Australians. The purpose of the Dementia Australia Research Foundation's Grants Program is to build capacity in the field of dementia research by supporting new, early and mid-career researchers.

This year, the Foundation will be providing funding for Project Grants, Post-doctoral Fellowships and Mid-Career Research Fellowships.
