Project grants

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

DEADLINES

The next deadline for pre-proposal project grant applications is 20 March 2019. 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 by 29 May 2019 via our online application system.  

Further details will be available soon.

DURATION

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.

ELIGIBILITY

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 2018, we received 25 applications and awarded 8 grants.
