About our Grants Program

Ramsay Hospital Research Foundation (RHRF) funds high-quality and innovative research that aims to improve patient outcomes and the delivery of healthcare in Australia. 

RHRF was established in 2017 to enhance healthcare delivery and improve patient outcomes in Australia. Throughout our history, we have been guided by a mission to provide better outcomes for our patients, to investigate the diseases and illnesses which affect them and to progress the learning and development of those who care for them.

In 2021, we launched an extensive grants program, made possible by the support of the Paul Ramsay Foundation. 

With $4 million of funding available every year over a five-year period, our grants program aims to make a meaningful difference, particularly in the lives of people living with disadvantage, by challenging the social, environmental and societal factors that have driven health inequities of the past. 

Our current grants rounds open to researchers are the Translational Challenge Grant and the Collaborative Research Request Grant.
