Two-Year Fellowships For Early-Career Multiple Sclerosis Researchers

Early career multiple sclerosis researchers from low- and middle-income countries are invited to apply for a two-year grant intended to cover the costs associated with research in a partner institute abroad. The deadline is on Wednesday 30th June 2021.

The McDonald Fellowship enables early career multiple sclerosis researchers from low- and middle-income countries to work in a research institution outside of their own country.

For 2021, organisers are open to applications for virtual or local projects to overcome the travel restrictions imposed by COVID-19. 

The fellowship consists of a two-year grant, around £30,000 GBP per year, to cover travel and living costs, and an additional contribution of £2,000 GBP per year to the host institution.

The deadline is on Wednesday 30th June 2021.


Main Criteria

All candidates must citizens of a low- or middle-income country be educated to post graduate level (at least MSc, preferably PhD/MD) in an area relevant to multiple sclerosis.

A project may be:

  • in a research institute/hospital abroad if travel permits (as in previous years)
  • in a research institute/hospital in your home country
  • a virtual project, either in full or in part with host institution mentoring
