The Society seeks to attract and train promising young investigators and doctors into the field of MS by supporting the training of postdoctoral fellows in studies related to MS in its efforts to end MS forever. To be considered for funding, all projects must show relevance to the Society’s research priorities. (See https://www.nationalmssociety.org/For-Professionals/Researchers/Society-Funding/Research-Funding-Principles-and-Priorities.)
The Society offers Postdoctoral Fellowship Grants to unusually promising recipients of M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degrees when it appears that the program of training to be supported by the grant will enhance the likelihood that the trainee will perform meaningful and independent research relevant to MS in the future, and obtain a suitable position which will enable them to do so.
The fellowship is for salary support only. The proposed postdoctoral program should emphasize opportunities for new research training and broadening scientific competence of the applicant.
