Education Research Grant Program


Improving education outcomes through evidence-based research

The Education Research Grant (ERG) program aims to build Regional Training Organisation (RTO) 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.

The program annually awards eight grants of up to $150,000 each to RTOs via a competitive process. RTOs partner with academic institutions to undertake and complete the research project. Projects are conducted within a one year period, commencing on 1 January and concluding by 31 December.
