Multiple Sclerosis International Federation «McDonald Fellowship»
The McDonald Fellowship enables young researchers from emerging countries to work in a research institution outside of their own country.
The fellowship consists of a two-year grant, around £30,000 GBP per year, to cover travel and living costs, and an additional contribution of £2,000 GBP per year to the host institution.
Deadline: 21July 2019
All candidates must:
Be under 35 at the time of application
Be educated to post graduate level in an area relevant to multiple sclerosis (MS)
Be citizens of a low- or middle-income country (all countries with a low, lower middle or upper middle income as defined by the World Bank)
Focus their research in an area relevant to MS
Candidates must also be in one of the following situations:
Working or studying in a low- or middle-income country (all countries with a low, lower middle or upper middle income as defined by the World Bank) at the time of nomination
Working or studying in another country on a project which started within the six months prior to nomination
Studying in another country on a project supported by an MS International Federation grant
Candidates are expected to return to their own countries at the end of the study period where they will contribute to advancing care and research in MS.
The fellowship may also be used as a supplement for work related to MS by a candidate who has been accepted for training in a recognised institute (within the six months prior to nomination) but who doesn’t have enough money to cover the total cost.
