Grants Program

To apply for funding you will need to submit an application using the online grant system, Smarty Grants.

Once you have registered to use Smarty Grants, you will be able to login with those same details to revisit your application, apply for further funding opportunities in the future and also provide progress reports for successful applications. Please make a note of your login details and keep them safe for future reference.

In applying for funds through TPCHF Grants, please ensure that you have done the following:

  • The email address you use for the grant application will be used to communicate with you for the entire grant application process and also during the research project if you are awarded a grant so please ensure this is the email of the research applicant and not an administrator.
  • Read the Advice to Applicants relating to the grant you wish to apply for.
  • You can save your information at any point during the application process and go back to it later to add extra information or upload supporting documents. (This can be done up until final submission).

If you have further queries or need assistance, please contact Dr Stephanie Yerkovich, Research Development Manager, TPCH Foundation on (07) 3139 4118 or email

Please see below a link to the Smarty Grants Help Guide for Applicants and help desk contact details:
