General deadlines for research grant applications

June 24, 2020: The COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenging fundraising environment and we are anticipating a $60 million shortfall in our revenue in our 2020 fiscal year. Society leadership has developed a contingency plan to address this shortfall, and some of those decisions will affect how we fund research going forward.

We are opening research fellowship and early career funding opportunities as part of our commitment to support the research workforce pipeline. The deadline has been pushed back to August.

While we will continue to fund our existing grant and fellowship commitments, we will not be offering new or revised/renewal Research Grant or Pilot grant funding opportunities for the foreseeable future.
 
We are committed to funding priority research and are in the process of developing new approaches to funding MS research that we will communicate later this summer. Please keep your eyes open for additional communication, including an invitation to join a town hall where we will share our new vision for funding research.
