The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) is offering the Du Pré Grants for researchers and clinicians working in multiple sclerosis. The MSIF Du Pré Grant enables multiple sclerosis researchers and clinicians from low- and middle-income countries to make short visits (up to six months) to established MS research centres, outside their own country. For 2020, MSIF is open to applications for virtual or local projects to overcome the travel restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

Projects Specifications:-

  • A project may be:
    • In a research institute/hospital abroad if travel permits (as in previous years).
    • In a research institute/hospital in your home country.
    • A virtual project, either in full or in part with host institution mentoring.
  • Projects are only accepted if risk of travel is low. The project can be carried out safely with minimal risk to the applicant.
  • There should be sufficient resources and supervision to allow the proposed project to take place and the project demonstrates sufficient value to the applicant.
  • Application forms include a question asking the applicant to write a plan for how to conduct the work or a part of the work if unable to travel.

Eligibility and Conditions:-

  • All candidates must:

    • Be educated to postgraduate level (at least MSc, but preferably PhD/MD) 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 proposal in an area relevant to multiple sclerosis

  • 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. A strong plan of how to continue one’s work after the award has ended is recommended.

  • The grant 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.

Benefits:-

  • Each grant is up to a maximum of £6,000 GBP, to cover the cost of travel and living expenses or to top up an existing grant to extend a visit. 
  • For 2020, MSIF is more flexible on the use of funds if virtual or local projects are proposed.

About MSIF:-

The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) is the world’s only global network of MS organisations. MSIF was established in 1967 as an international body linking the activities of National MS societies around the world. The Federation seeks to work in worldwide partnership with Member Societies and the international scientific community to eliminate multiple sclerosis and its consequences, and to speak out globally on behalf of those affected by multiple sclerosis. MSIF works to achieve its goal through the following key priorities: international research, development of new and existing societies, exchange of information, advocacy.
