The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) 2021 Frontier Health and Medical Research Grant Opportunity opened as the MRFF 2019 Frontier Health and Medical Research (Stage One) Grant Opportunity. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunity was deferred.
The MRFF 2021 Frontier Health and Medical Research Grant Opportunity now incorporates the entire Frontier process. It now includes both Stage One and Stage Two into a single grant opportunity.
If you submitted an application under the original MRFF 2019 Frontier Health and Medical Research (Stage One) Round, your application will be re-set back to draft in the portal. You must update your application dates and budget to the new requirements. For instructions read the FAQ's factsheet and follow the steps.
We understand the impact of COVID-19 to the health and medical research sector. This includes the ability of researchers to submit applications and undertake research.
We ask you to consider these impacts in your risk management plan. We'll take this information into account during assessment of your application.
The MRFF 2021 Frontier Health and Medical Research Grant Opportunity comprises three phases:
- Research planning
- Research implementation
If your application is successful, we'll award a grant to develop a detailed research plan. If you're awarded a grant you'll need to complete and submit your research plan. It will be then be competitively assessed against the research plan assessment criteria.
