Application instructions

The application period runs from 1 to 31 January every year. Grant applications must be submitted to the Foundation no later than on 31 January. The grant application for 2023 will have a new procedural. Foundation will inform about this on December.

An applicant may only apply for a personal grant for their own personal use. A research team leader may apply for a grant for the team to be paid out as salary, but a personal grant cannot be further awarded to a team member.
You can only apply for a travel grant for a specific congress and an awarded travel grant cannot be transferred to another congress. A travel grant for a single event may not be awarded to more than one applicant on each research team. No unused travel grant money may be used for other purposes; instead, the latter half of an awarded travel grant will only be payable upon submission of a report, a poster (or an abstract) and receipts. Receipts must provide evidence of payments made. The report should include a bill of costs.
Each application form can only be used to apply for one type of grant. If you are applying both for a research grant and a travel grant, for example, you should fill in a separate application for each one. If you only intend to start using the grant between 1 January and 30 April in the year following the year of application, please indicate this clearly in the ‘Purpose of grant’ section of your application. As a general rule, you should start using the grant during the year of the award.

We will not return any applications.

After you have received a decision on awarding a grant, we will ask you to provide your payment details. Once you have used the grant, you are required to report on its use within 3 months.

Please, notice: Write your application concisely, focusing on the essentials: what makes this specific research special and meritorious. The space available is limited and we no longer require any attachments.

In the event of any problems, you can turn to the General Secretary for help by calling +358 400 824 438 or by sending an e-mail to saatio(at)parkinsonsaatio.fi.
