Grants, Applications and Deadlines
Types of Grants
Neurological Foundation Scholarships and Fellowships are used to provide salary support for medically qualified or science qualified researchers at different stages of their careers.
Project Grants are the main avenue by which the Neurological Foundation sponsors research. Applicants can be scientifically or medically qualified, and the research can be clinical or biomedical. Applicants are usually salaried by their institutions and a grant will typically cover salaries for technicians, scientists or nurses, plus working expenses. Two rounds each year and the NF funds approximately 15 project grants each year. Projects can be from one to three year’s duration.
