Project grants

Our project grants tackle major Parkinson's research challenges with groundbreaking studies that get right to the heart of complex problems.


The next deadline for pre-proposal project grant applications is 3 February 2021.  Application forms will be available from 1 December on request by email. Contact us at [email protected]  

Applicants who are successful at the pre-proposal stage will be invited to submit a full application via our online application system. The deadline for full applications is 28 April 2021.


The duration of a grant is up to a maximum of 3 years. There is no upper limit on the award value - however,  the cost of applications is usually up to £400,000.

There is also no lower limit on the award value.


Grants are tenable only at a UK university, NHS Trust, statutory social care organisation or other UK research institution.

Principal applicants should hold employment contracts that extend beyond the period of the grant.

Co-applicants and collaborators may be based at institutions outside the UK or at pharmaceutical or biotech companies. 

In 2020, we received 50 applications and awarded 8 grants.
