2020 Hal Kendig Research Development Program

The Hal Kendig Research Development Program's purpose is to support early career researchers to improve their track record to lead to an ARC Grant or Fellowship or comparable research funding, and to support a discrete research effort that provides evidence and critical thinking that furthers the interests of vulnerable older people in advanced age.

The grants do this by providing targeted support for targeted and responsive research in ageing in Australia that is strategic to the career development of the applicant, as well as important to improving the experience of ageing.

Priority will be given to applied research to improve the experience of vulnerable older people in advanced aged with a strong emphasis on psycho-social research and quality of life.

Two $20,000 grants for projects of 18 month duration are available in this funding round.
