Career Transition Fellowships

Share

Finding a way to stop MS, restore function and end MS forever will require a cadre of well-trained scientists engaged in MS-related research. The Society’s Career Transition Fellowship addresses this need by fostering the development and productivity of young scientists who have potential to make significant contributions to MS research and help ensure the future and stability of MS research. The Career Transition Fellowship targets current postdoctoral trainees who demonstrate both commitment and exceptional potential to conduct MS-related research. The award provides approximately $550,000 over five years to support a two-year period of advanced postdoctoral training in MS research and the first three years of research support in a new faculty appointment.

Application process

The application process for this award involves two levels of review, preliminary and full applications. To submit a proposal for research support, investigators must first register with our apply online site (www.mssocietyapplyonline.org) and complete a pre-application. Staff will review the pre-application to determine whether the research plan is appropriate and relevant to our goals.

Deadline: Preliminary application due April 16; Full application due August 13
