Applications for the Beverley Raphael New Investigator Grant are now open

02 July 2020

Applications for the 2020 Beverley Raphael New Investigator Grants are now open with up to A$6,000 in grants available.

The RANZCP Foundation encourages research as an important activity for psychiatric training and believes that knowledge of research theory and methods is essential for the practice of clinical psychiatry.

The Beverley Raphael New Investigator Grant program is assessed by the Committee for Research and provides grants of up to A$6,000 to facilitate research projects and is open to:

  • RANZCP trainees
  • RANZCP Fellows or Affiliates within the first 5 years of obtaining their primary specialist psychiatry qualification

The individual applying must conduct the major part of the work involved, including data collection and entry. This makes the Beverley Raphael New Investigator Grants ideal for those seeking to perform research as part of a College Scholarly Project or Certificate of Advanced Training.

Application forms and guidelines are available on the ‘Apply for a research grant’ section of the RANZCP website.

The deadline for applications is 9am (AEST) Friday 31 July 2020.

Those not eligible for this award, such as Fellows post five years of Fellowship, are encouraged to apply for the RANZCP Foundation Early Research Career Grant.
