Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Travel grant program
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) offers travel grants to early-stage researchers and to allied health and nursing professionals, to support the development of expertise in the field of type 1 diabetes research in Australia. The grants are for amounts up to $2,000 for domestic travel or $4,000 for international travel to research institutions or scientific meetings, for the purpose of furthering the applicant's expertise in the field of type 1 diabetes.
Applicants must be committed to the mission of JDRF to prevent, treat and cure type 1 diabetes and its complications, and demonstrate relevance to one of JDRF's therapeutic areas: beta cell therapies, immune therapies, complications therapies or glucose control.
There are two types of grants:
- Early-stage researcher travel grants - provide support to medical or science graduates in the early stages of their research career (e.g. current PhD students, or not more than five years post-doctoral)
- Allied health/nursing travel grants - provide support to allied health or nursing professionals, or allied health or nursing students enrolled in a post graduate program, whose work/research will impact on the lives of people with type 1 diabetes and their carers and families. The term 'allied health' refers to health professionals usually considered part of the diabetes management team (i.e. diabetes educators, dieticians, psychologists, social workers, and podiatrists). In addition other allied health professionals who are considered relevant to the management of type 1 diabetes, such as exercise physiologists, occupational therapists and pharmacists, will also be considered.
