MISF offers Du Pré Grants to MS researchers from emerging countries to enable them to make short visits to established MS research centres outside their own country, either to learn from each other or to carry out parts of joint research projects. The aim is to encourage cross-fertilization of skills through collaborative research projects. Two of the annual awards are supported by Stichting MS Research (the Dutch MS Research Foundation).
Eligibility: All candidates must:
* be educated to post graduate level in an area relevant to multiple sclerosis (MS)
* be citizens of an emerging 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
Number of Awardees: Not specified
Value of Research: Each grant is likely to be between UK £2,000 and £4,000, to a maximum of £5,000. The funds are intended to go towards travel and living costs, or to top up an existing grant to extend a visit.
Duration of Research: Visits generally last between two and six months.
