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 20 February 2020. To request an application form, email 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 30 June 2020 (this deadline has been extended).


The duration of a grant is up to a maximum of 3 years. There is no upper limit on the award value - however, grants usually fall between £100,000 and £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 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. 

Please note that funding for cohort studies is only available through a cohort study grant.

In 2019, we received 20 applications and awarded 3 grants.
