The Bupa Health Foundation is seeking nominations for its 2021 Emerging Health Researcher Award.
Offered once a year, this award recognises the valuable contribution early career researchers (no more than 5 years post PhD) make toward improving health outcomes for all Australians. This year, the $25,000 Award is open to applications from researchers focused on improving mental health and wellbeing and/or the link between environmental and human health.
Five finalists will be awarded $5,000 with the eventual award winner receiving an additional $20,000. Five Commendation awards of $1,000 are also awarded. Total prize pool is expected to be $50,000.
This is the 10th year the Bupa Foundation has offered the Award, with Dr Jin Han of The Black Dog Institute receiving the grant in 2020.
- An early career researcher – anytime from qualification but no more than 5 years past PhD or research higher degree. (Exceptions will be granted for career disruption due to carer’s responsibilities, illness, disability or COVID-19).
- An Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
- Currently engaged in applied research activities that align with the focus of the Bupa Health Foundation.
