WA visionaries are encouraged to apply for Health and Medical Innovation Fellowships
Talented individuals aspiring to develop innovations that address issues arising from an unmet health or medical need or opportunity in Western Australia can now apply for the Future Health Research and Innovation Fund, Innovation Fellowships.
The inaugural Innovation Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive, merit-based process.
Funding of up to $150,000 is available to cover the fellow’s salary and the costs of innovation activities.
Successful applicants will be supported by their nominated expert mentors and supervisors to develop a new process, product and/or service with significant commercial potential for the health of the WA community.
Innovation can be incremental, transformative or disruptive.
The scholarships will enhance the innovation knowledge, skills and experience of successful applicants, as well as the cooperative culture in WA’s innovation and commercialization sectors.

As Minister of Medical Research Stephen Dawson said:
“We tap into WA’s pool of talented people who are striving to improve their knowledge, skills and experience in healthcare and medical innovation.
“This is a chance for applicants to advance the quality and capacity of their innovations with vital funding to support their work.
“The McGowan Government is proud to support opportunities for Western Australians looking to nurture innovative ideas who may not have had the chance to develop.”
