Applications are now closed.
The Sax Institute’s Research Action Awards honour individuals whose research has made a significant impact on health policy, programs or service delivery. Up to two Awards will be granted and each winner will receive a certificate and prize of $5,000. Applications are open until 5pm Monday 24, August 2020.
Winners of this year’s Awards will be chosen by a committee of national and international experts chaired by distinguished public health physician Dr Heather Buchan.
Applications are open to early career researchers who are employed by one of the Sax Institute’s Ordinary Member organisations and have up to 15 years’ postdoctoral or equivalent experience. Applications must describe research that has had an impact on health policy, programs or service delivery, and demonstrate evidence of the impact.
Our members are leaders in public health and health services research. If you are employed by an organisation that is not an Ordinary Member but engages in a relevant research program, why not discuss applying for membership with your centre manager? Details of the eligibility criteria and how to apply for membership can be found on the Sax Institute website.
Closing date for applications
Applications must be received by 5pm on Monday, 24 August 2020. Eligible researchers are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the application requirements and to submit the application as early as possible to avoid missing the deadline.
The awards presentation
Successful applicants will be notified by early October 2020 and an online award event will be held in late November 2020.
