Sydney Research Awards and Scholarships

The Sydney Research Awards and Scholarships Program celebrates and encourage research excellence across the organisations in the Sydney Research partnership.

The award and scholarship recipients will present and be announced as part of Sydney Local Health District’s annual Innovation and Research Symposium, 4-5 July 2024.

There are four awards and scholarships to be awarded to celebrate and encourage research excellence. 

We are accepting applications for the Annual Health Informatics Research Infrastructure Award, Clinician Researcher Scholarship and Health Informatics Researcher Scholarship. Some of the awards and scholarships offer up to $120,000 over a three-year period.

If you know of a supervisor, colleague or collaborator that should also be recognised – nominate them for the Young Researcher Award, Research Supervisor Award, or Research Excellence Award.

Entries now closed for the 2024 Sydney Research Awards and Scholarships.
