This funding scheme replaces the previous Stimulus Grant scheme. Implementation Grants of up to $150,000 are available to Queensland-based health services groups. Projects will be 12 months in duration. These grants will be to support groups to conduct health services research involving implementation and evaluation in a “real world” health service setting. The focus should be on providing evidence for health service changes that are both effective and sustainable.
A successful application for an Implementation grant will have these attributes:
We will not be offering Postgraduate Scholarships in the 2015 funding round. This may be revised for 2016.
We will not be offering Partnership Grants in the 2015 funding round. This may be revised for 2016.
