Nominations for MSIF fellowships and grants now open
The McDonald Fellowship enables young researchers from emerging countries to work with the world's leading researchers in MS, with a view to returning to their own countries to establish a programme of MS research that involves the application of newly learned techniques. This is a two-year fellowship, with an award of £30,000 per annum to the candidate and an additional sum of £2000 per annum awarded to the host institute.

Du Pré Grant
The Du Pré Grant is offered to young researchers from emerging countries, to enable them to undertake short visits to other MS research centres, either to learn more 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. Each grant is likely to be a maximum of £5,000. Further information may be found at: www.msif.org/dupre.
