Our Mission / Objective

The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation is an independent funder of innovative children’s research grants in South Australia.

Established in 1976, the Foundation is dedicated to improving the health, education and welfare of Australia’s children through the provision of grants to advance the knowledge, capability and outcomes of South Australia’s world-class research organisations.

Today, it is especially committed to the areas of child protection, children’s mental health, childhood obesity and understanding the impact that social determinants have on a child’s life.

The Foundation is proudly associated with Channel 7 Adelaide and some of the nation’s leading research and service organisations – Flinders University, Novita Children’s Services, The University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and the Women’s and Children’s Health Network – which together forms its honorary Board and independent Research Committee.

Projects in Progress

Currently, the Foundation distributes over $1,500,000 annually and since its inception in 1976, grants totaling $28,238,328 have been provided to community-based studies, clinical studies and basic science projects in the fields of allied health, dentistry, education, environment, nursing, medicine, mental health, midwifery and social sciences.
The maximum funding per individual grant is up to $100,000 per annum, which may be taken over 1 or 2 years. Early Career Grants of up to $40,000 are also available, to encourage aspiring researchers to lead their first research project as a Chief Investigator.
Further information and a list of current and past funded projects is available on the website – www.crf.org.au
