Call for applications 2023

The Finnish Parkinson Foundation awards grants for scientific research into Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.

The Foundation hereby announces a new application period for grants running from 1 to 31 January 2023.

Grants will be awarded for the following purposes:

  1. scientific research, primarily research towards a doctoral thesis;
  2. travel grants for participation in a scientific congress (poster or oral presentation required);
  3. project grants for more long-term postgraduate studies at a foreign centre specialising in research into movement disorders.

This year the foundation has a special grant to be applied. The special grant is a maximum of 50,000 euros and is awarded for three years, with the latter two years being an option. Option years are decided based on research reporting, in which case the criteria are the quality and outcomes of the research.

As a rule, grants are awarded as tax-exempt working grants for recipients to cover a leave of absence from their other employment.

Each grant recipient is required to report on the use of the grant to the Foundation within 3 months of the end of the grant period or the trip taken.

The application is completely electronic and is done by filling out the application form on the foundation's website.

The application form will be opened on January 1, 2023 at the latest at 9 a.m. and will be closed on January 31, 2023 at 11 p.m.

The foundation does not receive paper applications by mail except in exceptional cases. An electronic application requires a digital signature, in which case the applicants must confirm their identities either with online banking codes or MobileID’s.
