HeartKids’ Grants-in-Aid Program supports research, and research capacity building, in congenital and acquired childhood heart disease. The grants, that are offered on an annual basis, are supported by the Program’s Founding Partner, Wilson HTM Foundation.
Grants-in-Aid are limited in size (minimum grant $20,000 and maximum $50,000) and are intended to be expended within a maximum of 12 months. The Research Advisory Committee reviews project applications and makes a recommendation on project funding to the HeartKids Australia Board who determine the final selection.
Six projects were funded in 2012. The scope of the projects included the following areas of research:
- Biomedical and basic discovery science
- Clinical research
- Public health research
