The Beryl Haynes Memorial Fund 2021 Research Grants 

The Beryl Haynes Memorial Fund was established in 1992 by the Tasmanian Branch Council to support Tasmanian physiotherapy research in memory of Beryl, a pioneering leader in the Tasmanian Health system over decades. 

The Council is now calling for interested applicants to pitch their research ideas. To be considered, the applicant must meet the following criteria;

The applicant must:

• be the Chief Investigator of the project
• hold registration with AHPRA
• be an Australian citizen, or have permanent resident status
• be currently working or studying in Tasmania.  Members of the research team may be located outside of Tasmania.
• be a financial member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and maintain APA membership for the duration of the grant.

The applicant must not have received:

• a Beryl Haynes Memorial grant previously  
• a PRF Seeding, Project or Tagged grant previously
• any research grant of more than $20,000 as a named chief investigator
• more than $20,000 in maintenance or support funding accompanying a post-doctoral fellowship (total amount over the duration of the fellowship).  This amount is exclusive of salary but includes additional funds for items such as travel and research consumables.

Applicants must pitch their research ideas via completing and submitting the application form that can be downloaded here. Applicants must note the importance of the project to the Tasmanian community, as well as an overview of their research experience.  Endorsed pitches will then proceed to the Physiotherapy Research Foundation (PRF) grant process in early 2021, and have the opportunity for mentorship to develop their application and form a research team.  

There are two grants of up to $15,000 each on offer for physiotherapists working or studying in Tasmania. The research can relate to any area of physiotherapy practice and the grant is designed to support new researchers.  

Submissions using the pitch grant application form and any relevant documents are to be sent via email to: All submissions must be received by Monday 30 November, 5:00 pm. Late applications will not be accepted, and no extension of the submission deadline will be considered. Receipt of your application will be acknowledged by return e-mail.
