- About the Australian Flora Foundation
The Australian Flora Foundation is a charity fostering scientific research into the biology and cultivation of the Australian flora. It was established in 1981 and celebrates the 40th year of the Foundation’s operation in 2021.
Each year the Foundation provides funding for a number of grants for research. While the grants are not usually large, they are often vital in enabling such projects to be undertaken. Many of the researchers are honours or postgraduate students and their success with a Foundation grant hopefully stimulates their interest in researching Australia’s unique and diverse plants throughout their careers. Donations most welcome.
