Information regarding the eligibility criteria can be found on the Information for Applicants page. 


Universities, Institutes and other organisations are welcome to promote the Dementia Grants Program. Please contact us for further information.


All Dementia Australia Research Foundation grants are tied to the principal investigator. The Foundation must be informed if the principal investigator is no longer working on the project, or is transferring to another host institute. Please contact us for further information on our contracts.


University infrastructure costs or levies should not be included in the application budget and will not be covered by the Dementia Australia Research Foundation. As the Dementia Australia Research Foundation is considered Category 1 – Australian Competitive Grant Income, such costs should be covered by the Australian Government’s Research Block Grants scheme. Further information on the self-assessment system for universities to determine which of their R&D income can be classified as Category 1 – Australian Competitive Grant Income is available here.
