Applications are now closed – Inaugural ‘Your Choice’ Patient Impact Grant Round 2019 

The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) was pleased to invite applications for its inaugural ‘Your Choice’ Patient Impact Grant Round. This exciting initiative allowed THRF supporters to play a key role in deciding how their donations will make an impact in the South Australian community.

For the first time, THRF asked our loyal supporters to nominate the areas of medical research and patient care they would like THRF to fund with a specific grant round! Supporters selected the two areas of healthcare that matter most to them, resulting in two areas of research for this grant round.

The following grants will be awarded, with funding commencing 1 July 2019 for a 12 month project:


  • One grant of $200,000, in the field of Aged Care
  • One grant of $200,000, in the field of Cancer Patient Support


All applications will undergo an initial assessment by a THRF internal technical committee and the shortlisted proposals will be communicated to THRF supporters who will then cast their final vote. The grant with the highest number of votes for each of the two areas of healthcare will be awarded.
