Funding programs


Funding programs aim to support and complement existing diabetes research programs to build opportunity and capacity to positively impact and enhance diabetes education and care.

Programs will:

  • Fund only the best research within agreed priorities
  • Prioritise applications from research teams that include clinicians and consumers
  • Focus on peer reviewed and publishable outcomes
  • Form partnerships to enhance the scope and impact of the Foundation’s research program
  • Support pilot programs that enable future nationally competitive grants including National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Australian Research Council (ARC) funding
  • Liaise with diabetes researchers more widely, sharing information and offering collaboration
  • Grow the funds available and advocate in the wider community for enhanced research investment

The extent to which the ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation Program can achieve its vision and mission will depend on the goodwill and generosity of ADEA funders and supporters. The intent is two funding programs:

Research Grants: Up to $60 000, for a maximum of 12 months

Fellowship Grants: Up to $60 000 for 12 months for eligible ADEA Members
