Partnership Engagement Grants

Share this

These grants enable researchers to partner with the Heart Foundation to apply for NHMRC, ARC and other funding, for large-scale cardiovascular research projects.

The Partnership Engagement Grant (PEG) scheme offers Heart Foundation funds to leverage significant additional funding from other sources. Researchers can approach us with proposals to contribute to partnership grant applications to other funding agencies. 

By partnering with the Heart Foundation, researchers benefit from association with a large, reputable organisation that will enhance their ability to attract further funding. 

This scheme is predominantly aimed at NHMRC Partnerships for Better Health Projects (Partnership Projects) and ARC Linkage Projects, but other partnership grant types will be considered.

The award provides financial, reputational and in-kind support. The Heart Foundation may agree to enter into up to two partnership projects in any PEG round.


Open to all researchers with cardiovascular research projects of interest to the Heart Foundation.

Prior to submitting an application, contact should be made with the Heart Foundation to discuss any possible in-kind contribution requirements.  


Up-front one-off funding support (project may be multi-year).


Up to $150,000 in cash contribution.
