Please find below a range of funding opportunities offered by affiliated organisations.
We would like to point out that these funds, grants, awards and prizes are not related to the EAN Educational Programmes.

The objective of the this Fellowship scheme is to encourage the brightest UK neurology trainees in undertaking world-leading clinical neuroscience research for improving the care of those with neurological conditions and to develop new links between the funders of research and clinical trainees.

Research in clinical neuroscience lags far behind research in cancer and heart disease in funding and in the recruitment and retention of research personnel. It is vital that the next generation of neurologists is trained in research and discovery.

The ABN Clinical Research Training Fellowships support 3-year clinical research training fellowships in neurological disciplines resulting in a PhD.

The Department of Defense maintains a Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program to support research across the full range of science and medicine, with an underlying goal of enhancing the health, care, and well-being of military Service members, Veterans, retirees, and their family members. Projects related to Peripheral Neuropathy are eligible to apply for funding through this program thanks to the partnership between the Foundation and key Congressional partners who recognize a relationship between GBS and Service members.

As part of the GBS|CIDP Foundation International’s mission to provide education and support research, we offer research grants to qualified applicants. Through the generosity of these many individual contributors, to whom the Foundation is most grateful, we are able to offer this Research Grant Program. The GBS|CIDP Foundation International has worldwide representation, sharing resources with local support group chapters nationally and internationally.

Foundation interests include GBS, both demyelinating and axonal variants, Miller Fisher syndrome, CIDP, Multifocal Motor Neuropathy, and others. Research interests cover a broad range of subjects including development of methods to more rapidly diagnose these disorders, identification of mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis, development of more effective treatments to limit the disease process, prevent complications and reduce long-term adverse sequelae.

The GBS|CIDP Foundation believes in supporting research on GBS, CIDP, and variants by funding grants for projects that contribute to the knowledge of, and towards an eventual cure for, GBS, CIDP, and variants. We invite all researchers to apply for this 2-year, $100k/year grant opportunity.
Letters of Intent due: November 1.

The Benson Fellowship is a three-year fellowship that provides an opportunity for talented scientists to engage in peripheral nerve of study. The aim of the scheme is to provide funds (up to $150k per year for three years) to enable clinicians or non-clinical scientists in training or having recently completed training to engage in a substantial research project in the field of inflammatory neuropathy at a Centre or Centers of Excellence or an Institution approved by the committee. Preference will be given to candidates who intend to pursue a long-term career in this field. Letters of Intent due: September 1, 2024
The next fellowship cycle begins January 2025

The main objectives of the fellowship programme are to motivate and facilitate the training of young professionals working in HD clinical practice through sharing knowledge and experience.
(-> neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, clinical geneticists or other healthcare professionals)

Fellows selected for the programme spend six weeks working in a highly regarded, multi-disciplinary HD clinic in Europe.
Priority will be given to applicants who are already engaged in clinical practice in HD and have a realistic prospect of remaining active in the HD field following completion of the programme.

Placements to host clinics will take place in the respective year.

Neurology Research Grant 2023

The Jacques and Gloria Gossweiler Foundation offers a "Neurology Research Grant" to support high quality research on non-pharmacological treatment of symptoms experienced by patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders performed in a research center in or related to Switzerland. The principal applicant must be in a position to carry out the research project under his or her own responsibility. The applicant must be able to show that he/she is employed at least 50% for the duration of the project at a research institution, with the necessary research infrastructure.

The funding period is two years, with a possible extension up to a maximum of 4 years. It includes any support of the research project, with the exception of the applicant's own salary.

Application deadline: 30. September 2023

The Neurology Scientific Advisory Board of JGGF is presided by Prof. Dr. med. Jean-Marc Burgunder.

The application for funding has to meet to the formal requirements mentioned on

The PNS funded grant opportunity is designed to provide support for two candidates:

  • It will enable a junior clinical investigator to acquire or consolidate expertise in clinical observational studies, clinical outcome measures, and/or clinical diagnostics and therapeutic development.
  • It will empower a junior scientist or clinician-scientist to develop expertise and knowledge in peripheral nerve research by addressing key questions in Schwann cell/axonal biology and/or by elucidating relevant disease pathomechanisms.

The selected recipients of these training grants will conduct their research activity within a Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) member research center where they have not previously received training.

Grant: up to $75,000 USD to be further disbursed to each grant recipient annually, to cover their salary, and living expense
All projects must commence by 31 January the year following the award of the grant.

The Brain Prize was launched in 2011 and is awarded annually by the Lundbeck Foundation in Denmark. Until now the prize has had a European emphasis and been awarded to researchers who have made outstanding contributions in Europe, or have had close interactions with European research. The board of the foundation has now decided to remove this restriction and make to prize truly international. Thus, from 2018, nominees can be of any nationality and working in any part of the world.

The Brain Prize is a personal award of 1 mio. €. It recognizes highly original and ground-breaking advances in research on the nervous system, covering all aspects from fundamental studies to research related to understanding and treatment of diseases of the brain and other parts of the nervous system. The Prize is intended to raise the visibility of neuroscience and to be a stimulus to this important field of research. It may be awarded to one or shared by two or three scientists who have distinguished themselves through publication of outstanding results in the field of brain research. The prize may in extraordinary cases be awarded to four or more researchers.
