Expression of Interest - Non-Research Activity - Round 1 (May - July 2017)

This grant round has now closed. Submissions closed at midnight 14 July 2017 (AEST).

IMPORTANT: Please read information below to assist you in completing your application online.

Welcome to the Children's Hospital Foundation online grant management system, powered by SmartyGrants.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation is calling for Expressions of Interest for non-research activities that aim to improve paediatric health care and medical services and enhance support provided to patients and their families.  This formal Expression of Interest process has been developed to facilitate equitable, state-wide access to funding for non-research activities and to ensure that outcomes that matter most to patients and families are achieved.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Please ensure you read the Expression of Interest Submission Guidelines and complete the Self-Assessment Eligibility Checklist therein before starting an application.  

You are required to submit a Letter of Support signed by the Divisional or Executive Director at CHQ (or equivalent at another HHS serving children).  You must use the Letter of Support template which is available here.

You may begin anywhere in the application form. Please ensure you save as you go.

For queries about the guidelines, deadlines, or questions in the form, please contact us at grants@childrens.org.au.

NAVIGATING THE APPLICATION FORM

On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the application. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.

SAVING YOUR DRAFT APPLICATION

If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any applications you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft application and start where you left off.

You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form.

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION

You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed.

Once you have submitted your application, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your application, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.

ATTACHMENTS AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS

You will need to attach a Letter of Support with your application. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

COMPLETING AN APPLICATION IN A GROUP/TEAM

A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.

SPELL CHECK

Most internet browsers (including Firefox v2.0 and above; Safari; and Google Chrome) have spell checking facilities built in – you can switch this function on or off by adjusting your browser settings.
