Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International emerging investigators to encourage professional development in the field of multiple sclerosis. Applicants must submit a pre-application prior to applying. The program is intended to support the training of postdoctoral fellows in studies related to MS in the MS Society's efforts to end MS forever. The Society supports fundamental as well as applied studies, non-clinical or clinical in nature, including projects in patient management, care, and rehabilitation.

The Society offers postdoctoral fellowship grants to unusually promising recipients of M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degrees when it appears that the program of training to be supported by the grant will enhance the likelihood that the trainee will perform meaningful and independent research relevant to MS in the future, and obtain a suitable position which will enable them to do so. The fellowship is for salary support only. The proposed postdoctoral program should emphasize opportunities for new research training and broadening scientific competence of the applicant.

To be considered for funding, all projects must show relevance to the Society’s research priorities.

Term of Contract:

Fellowship support will not be provided for more than three years.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Previous Training: Applicants with 0-36 months of previous postdoctoral training at the time of the application submission deadline may apply for this award. Applicants must hold, or be candidates for, an M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degree. However, a fellowship will not be activated for a doctoral candidate until the Society has received written notification from a university or professional school that an appropriate doctoral degree has been awarded. The Society will consider applications from individuals with more than 36 months experience on a case-by-case basis. Individuals seeking such consideration should contact the Society.

Citizenship: U.S. citizenship is not required for applicants who desire training in institutions in the United States. However, applicants who plan training in other countries must be U.S. citizens. Applicants may submit dual applications to governmental granting agencies and other non-profit funding agencies.

Mentor and Institution: It is the responsibility of the applicant to make all arrangements for the proposed training with an appropriate mentor and institution, prior to formal application.
