Education Research Grants
Education Research Grants (ERGs) aim to continue to build research capability in medical education and training with a specific focus on education improvement. The overarching objective is to develop evidence-based education initiatives that increase training capacity and improve educational outcomes. ERGs are awarded via a competitive process to Regional Training Organisations (RTOs), who partner with academic institutions to undertake and complete a research project.
In late 2016, the Department of Health devolved responsibility for the education research grants (ERG) program to the GP Colleges. The RACGP is administering three grants for the current (2016-2017) ERG cohort and will administer up to ten grants for the 2017-18 ERG intake.
Expressions of interest for the 2017-18 cohort are now closed and applications are open. If you did not submit an EOI for the program but wish to apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify the team.
Expression of Interest
Expressions of interest have now closed for the 2017-2018 RACGP Education Research Grants intake.
Applications for the 2017-2018 round of RACGP Education Research Grants are now open and will close Friday 19 May 2017. Applications must be submitted through an online grants management portal:
https://racgpresearch.smartygrants.com.au/ERG20172018. Applicants may preview the application form before commencing their submission.
Interested parties may apply to both RACGP and ACCRM for a grant, but can only accept an offer for a grant from one College.
The 2017 education research grants guidance document provides comprehensive information for current and prospective grant holders and their regional training organisations.
