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 2020.
Grants will be awarded for the following purposes:
- scientific research, primarily research towards a doctoral thesis;
- travel grants for participation in a scientific congress (poster or oral presentation required);
- project grants for more long-term postgraduate studies at a foreign centre specialising in research into movement disorders.
As a general 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.
Applications can be filed online by logging in to the Foundation’s website. Applications submitted online must arrive at the Foundation no later than on 31 January 2020.
