About the RANZCP Foundation


The RANZCP Foundation supports and encourages psychiatrists to engage in clinical work, research and other initiatives to improve the mental health and wellbeing of communities.

About the RANZCP Foundation

The RANZCP Foundation enables the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) to raise funds and manage an annual grants, scholarships and awards program that provides RANZCP members the opportunity to apply for financial support to undertake world-class psychiatric research and projects.

The Foundation’s activities are supported by the generous contributions of our donors and benefactors. 100% of donations to the Foundation go to funding grants. All operational costs of the Foundation are fully supported internally by the RANZCP.

The Foundation is currently actively expanding the range of activities it supports. Please talk with us about forming new partnerships, projects and grants programs.
