ANZBMS Bone Health Foundation Grant


Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society (ANZBMS)

in conjunction with


Bone Health Foundation (BHF)


Research Grants-in-Aid

The Australian and New Zealand bone and mineral research community has a proven track record of producing internationally competitive research outcomes which have a meaningful impact on individuals with poor bone health. Together the ANZBMS and the BHF are committed to ensuring this track record of excellence and impact, continues and thrives in the current climate of complex national funding conditions.

As such, the ANZBMS is delighted to announce a new initiative. Jointly, the ANZBMS and BHF will support high quality unfunded bone and mineral-related research applications. The purpose is to enable mid-career researchers who have been unsuccessful in a major research grant application to continue to generate data to strengthen their application and enhance their competitiveness in subsequent major grant rounds.

The Awards:

ANZBMS and BHF will co-fund up to 2 x one-year Grants-in-Aid of up to AUD$25,000 (GST exclusive) in 2022.


How to apply:

Eligible applicants must submit a completed 2022 Grant-in-Aid Application Form (see below) including:

Applications must be submitted through the RAO of the applicant’s administering institution, by email to:

Ivone Johnson,

ANZBMS Executive Officer



Application deadline: 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time, March 12, 2022.

No late applications will be accepted.

Assessment: Applications will be assessed by an independent research panel of experts with both clinical and basic science experience from the ANZBMS and BHF.

If the applicant is awarded funds to carry out the described work prior to notification of the outcome of this grant-in-aid they must notify the ANZBMS and withdraw their application immediately.
