Avant Foundation Research Scholarships

The Avant Foundation was established to improve healthcare through the funding of research, education and leadership programs that make a real difference to how medicine is practised.

Over the last two years, the Foundation has awarded 22 grants worth over $800,000. The grants have funded small and large projects that will help improve our healthcare system.

Applications are now open for funding for projects being undertaken that fall under the focus areas for the 2021 program:

  • initiatives that develop and support leadership capability
  • academic research that drives a reduction in medico-legal risk
  • quality improvement initiatives in the clinical setting
  • education initiatives focusing on quality, safety and professionalism.


The Avant Foundation is particularly interested in projects focused on prescribing (including drugs of dependence), e-prescribing, telehealth, genomic testing, COVID-19, fragmentation of care, and health and wellbeing.

Expressions of interest are now open.
