Call for applications for funding: Round 5

The NSW Ministry of Health invites applications for funding under Round 5 of the Prevention Research Support Program (formerly known as the Population Health and Health Services Research Support Program) for the period July 2017 to June 2021.

Funding is available to eligible NSW research organisations or collaborations conducting prevention and early intervention research that aligns with NSW Health priorities.

Previously funded organisations under the program may re-apply for funding under this round. However, there should be no expectation that PRSP funds will continue to go to the same organisations/collaborations.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 30 November 2016.

Details about applications for funding under Round 5, including the information kit and application package, can be found at Prevention Research Support Program .
