The National Multiple Sclerosis Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research on a cure for and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
The society currently is accepting applications for its Pilot Grant Program, which provides grants to quickly test novel ideas that may serve to advance its mission of stopping MS progression, restore function, improve quality of life, and/or prevent MS. The program supports fundamental as well as applied studies, non-clinical or clinical in nature, including projects in patient management, care, and rehabilitation.
Through the program, one-year grants of up to $55,000 will be awarded in support of innovative, cutting-edge ideas or untested methods, and to gather sufficient preliminary data to apply for longer-term funding.
Researchers who have completed their postdoctoral training are invited to apply. Individuals who are currently postdoctoral fellows or the equivalent, or who are graduate/medical students are not eligible for support under this program.
See the National MS Society website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
