ASA Grants Program
Through the Research Grant Scheme, funding is available to support one or more research projects each year. Total funding of AU$30,000 is available to support and facilitate new research that contributes to the sonography practice.
This aligns with the ASA Strategic Intent to be a world leader in providing sonographer education and research and to promote and advocate for the highest possible professional standards. Specifically, this funding supports members to undertake quality research which will then lead to publications and contribute to the evidence base of sonography.
ASA Accredited Medical Sonographer members are invited to apply for funding by completing the Expression of Interest (EOI) document in September of each year.
If you have further questions before the EOI goes live you can email email@example.com.
