Apply for an AIFA grant

Expressions of Interest are due by 8th June 2017

AIFA awarded its first grant in 2014 and has provided $100,000 to fund scientific research in Australia that aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people living with allergy and other immune diseases. For information on grants awarded go to: www.allergyimmunology.org.au/projects 

We support innovative early stage projects and early career researchers (working 3-5 years after completion of their PhD). This allows new projects to get off the ground and provides an opportunity to leverage further funding.

To be eligible for an AIFA grant, the applicant needs to be associated with a non-profit institution in Australia or New Zealand with the facilities to carry out the research detailed in the application. Previously unsuccessful applications may be resubmitted.

Applications are not restricted to ASCIA members.
